In line with the City of Melbourne Urban Forest Strategy, we are proposing to introduce street trees and greening to improve the look, environment and liveability of Little Baillie Street.

With its unique personality and ‘C’ shaped one-way road, currently Little Baillie Street has no street trees or greenery. This proposal looks to transform the existing streetscape through the introduction of:

  • Tree canopy cover — for summer shade, visual impact and climate mitigation.
  • Street greening to help reduce traffic speed and ensure greater safety for pedestrians.
  • Biodiverse garden beds within passively irrigated tree plots to enhance native ecology, increase permeability and reduce storm water run-off.

Dive deeper into the detail on our Street greening proposal page. Feedback we gathered during community consultation will help inform a final design with construction planned to commence in early 2022.
