A beautiful, liveable and accessible city

Our vision is for a beautiful, liveable and accessible city; with more trees, wider footpaths and vibrant businesses in thriving neighbourhoods. We see our streets being used by people of all ages and abilities, irrespective of whether they walk, roll, cycle, use public transport or drive. Residents and shoppers should be able to move safely, comfortably, and conveniently around Yarra, and park near shops.
