Palmer Street, Fitzroy, is an east-west access street with parking on both sides. It’s a no-through road that hosts a mosque, the Brotherhood of St Laurence, social housing, heritage homes, the Ursula Frayne Memorial Chapel and the Academy of Mary Immaculate.
Architecture firm Blur has proposed changes to the street to make it more hospitable to people walking. The road would be raised and decorated, with pedestrians having priority over cars.
