The City of Melbourne is delighted to announce four laneways that show great potential for greening. The four Green Your Laneway pilot lanes are:
- Katherine Place
- Meyers Place
- Guildford Lane
- Coromandel Place
The Green Your Laneways team reached out to building owners in each of the shortlisted laneways to determine their interest in taking part and collaborating on the pilot. Each of the successful laneways has a group of owners that are highly supportive of the project, and at least one champion to help build support within the laneway.
To those who have worked with the City Of Melbourne and have been selected - congratulations! We will be in touch to work with you on developing a design in coming weeks. These projects are expected to be delivered in the 2016-17 financial year.
If you were in one of the laneways that narrowly missed out, thank you for your interest and be assured that the City Of Melbourne’s vision for its laneways is only just beginning. The City Of Melbourne is currently investigating new ways of funding a fifth Green Your Laneway project. Keep an eye out for a questionnaire in coming weeks, which will be used to determine how a fifth project may be delivered.
Finally, thank you for participating in this initiative. It has been fantastic to have your ideas and interest. The Green you Laneway team cannot wait to celebrate the opening of our laneways with you!
