Residents draw to the attention of Council the condition of the Oxford Street Shopping Precinct in Bulimba. Local traders have raised concerns that the streetscape along Oxford Street is looking tired and in need of improvements to attract residents and visitors to the Precinct. Local traders have specifically requested updated planting and landscaping, additional seating, public artwork, decorative lighting and decorative signage to designate Oxford Street as a stand-alone Precinct and recognise its unique character.

Your petitioners, therefore, request that Council fund a Village Precinct Project in Oxford Street, Bulimba as a priority.

Council response

Council’s budget for Village Precinct Projects delivery has been allocated in full for the 2019-20 financial year. Allocation of funds for the investigation of a Village Precinct Project at Oxford Street shopping precinct, potentially including site surveys, utilities mapping and initial high-level concept designs and costings, will be considered as part of the development of the 2020-21 Council budget.
