The City of Hobart is planning a streetscape upgrade in Elizabeth Street (Midtown) as part of the City's Local Retail Precincts Plan. The aim of the project is to revitalise the section of Elizabeth Street between Melville Street and Warwick Street, to improve walkability, accessibility and amenity for pedestrians and to create a more vibrant and sociable main street environment.
A comprehensive community engagement program took place in 2019. During this process the City collaborated with Midtown's traders, residents, property owners and other stakeholders (who formed a Project Action Team - PAT) in a co-design process, to identify priorities to upgrade Elizabeth Street.
A draft streetscape concept design for Midtown has been developed in response to the PAT's vision. This plan re-imagines Elizabeth Street as a more welcoming accessible and people-focused main street. The plan can be viewed on the Your Say Hobart website.
Following further consultation with key stakeholders and the wider community, this concept design was endorsed by Council in December 2020 as as a framework for future streetscape development in the project area.
