Princes Hill is Yarra’s Local Area Place Making (LAPM) precinct #1, in the north-west corner of the municipality.

Princes Hill hosts Princes Hill Primary School and Princes Hill Secondary College, attracting students from the surrounding area, who deserve safe routes to school.

Last LAPM study

Princes Hill was last reviewed in 2015 and the output was described as a traffic management plan, not a place making plan. Endorsed works have yet to be completed. Council does not offer a copy of the complete report on its website.

What Yarra can do

Council could review each LAPM area in each 4-year term of council, and offer an average budget of $2m each. This would enable Princes Hill to be continually improved.
