Project: Jewell of Brunswick
Organisation: Moreland City Council
Grant fund: Public Safety Infrastructure Fund
Grant amount: $210,000
In May 2013, Moreland City Council was awarded $210,000 under the Public Safety Infrastructure Fund (PSIF) Grants Program for the ‘Jewell of Brunswick’ project to build a new public space and urban bouldering wall (climbing wall) on the corner of Wilson Avenue and Sydney Road, Brunswick to address local crime and safety issues.
Using a placemaking approach, Council conducted extensive community consultation from planning through to implementation. Through the consultation process, the project achieved significant community support, resulting in the expansion of the project to the permanent closure of a section of Wilson Avenue to create a new people-friendly public space.
Construction on the permanent public space commenced on 2 February 2015 and was completed in June 2015.
