Project update

Provide feedback on the concept plan

In April 2023, we engaged the community to seek feedback on plans to revive Hotham Street shops, Cranbourne. Community input contributed to the concept design, which is now available for feedback.

Design intent

The concept design has been influenced by feedback received as part of the community survey earlier this year, which highlighted the need for improved landscaping, seating, street art, footpaths and lighting.

The design theme draws inspiration from the rich and vibrant aesthetics of South Asian culture, including the curry leaf as the concept story. The colour and material palette chosen in the design is deeply rooted in the cultural context of Hotham Street, reflecting its diversity and connection to local cultural heritage. Four strategically chosen nodal spaces along Hotham Street will be the primary focus of our design. These spaces will undergo comprehensive upgrades, including pavement improvements, the creation of more garden beds with new trees, and the replacement of existing seating.

Art Integration

City of Casey has collaborated with local artist Abby Rich to design, fabricate, and install permanent artworks that will adorn the pavement and the new furniture. These artworks are intended to engage and delight community members of all ages, with a special focus on creating a playful atmosphere for children. Art patterns will feature colourful elements and whimsical shapes infused into the shopping strip with fun and brightness. Patterns inspired by curry leaves and seed pods will be prominently incorporated into the nodal spaces, seamlessly blending with the landscape design theme and the selection of plants.

Project Information

In 2022, the City of Casey received funding from the Victorian Government’s Living Local Suburban Grants Program to revive Hotham Street Shops Cranbourne. This funding will be used to deliver streetscape renewal works and amenity improvements to revive the strip and attract more interest and foot traffic, support traders and foster a sense of pride of place with the business owners and residents.

We now invite the community to provide feedback on the concept design. We've included a copy of the concept design in the document library.
