Kingston Place Strategy

The Kingston Place Strategy was developed in partnership with local businesses, the community and Kingborough Council. It was adopted by Council in May, 2020.

The Strategy is based on a “placemaking” approach to improving central Kingston for residents and visitors to the area.  The strategy was developed via extensive stakeholder consultations, with almost 1,800 stakeholders over a 5-month period in late 2019 and early 2020.

The Place Strategy focuses on the public realm improvements as a catalyst for change, specifically the experience of pedestrians. It is an aspirational approach to planning for the future of Kingston CBD.

It is Council’s intention to use the findings of the Place Strategy to develop a structured plan for the Kingston CBD which will identify additional opportunities to make Central Kingston a more desirable place to live, work and play. The plan will have a strong focus on stimulating the local economy alongside creating a more vibrant destination where people want to spend more time during the day and night.
