The City of Melbourne is committed to ensuring our city is a welcoming, safe, and inclusive place for everyone. This includes our community that live, work, play, and commute in and around Royal Park.

This auditing process aims to capture experiences of safety from a range users in Royal Park. This includes actual and perceived inter-personal safety, cultural and gender safety, conflicting uses (e.g. walking and cycling on shared infrastructure) and our community’s experiences of safety-related infrastructure, such as lighting and road crossings.

As considerations of what it is to ‘feel safe’ are experienced differently by our community, we’re looking to engage a diverse and inclusive group of participants through this process, which will include thirty community-led audits. There will also be the opportunity to provide your feedback to us online via a mapping tool.

Results of this Community Safety Audit will inform the larger Royal Park Masterplan review.
