The City of Melbourne established the Green Your Laneway program to help transform the city’s laneways into leafy, green and useable spaces for everyone to enjoy.
Four pilot laneways were selected in 2017 to be the first of the Green Your Laneway pilot program. These included:
- Coromandel Place
- Guildford Lane
- Katherine Place
- Meyers Place.
After intensive design development, involving substantial input from the community, these four lanes have now been completed.
Five years after the four Green Your Laneway pilot projects were built, the City of Melbourne evaluated the projects to understand the factors that contribute to successful laneway greening. The evaluation resulted in three models to support future laneway greening, which were endorsed in August 2023.
