Mount Street precinct - masterplan

Prahran is a vibrant, popular place to live, and over the next decade we expect more people to move into the area.

With this in mind we want your help to develop a plan to deliver streets, footpaths, and open spaces that celebrate Prahran’s eclectic vibe, and meet community expectations.

Within Prahran, the area surrounding Mount Street, bounded by Chapel, High, Bangs and King Streets, has been identified as an area of significant development.

The expected growth in this area will place pressure on infrastructure and services, including our streets, parks and community facilities.

To prepare for this change Council is developing a Masterplan for the Mount Street precinct.

The Masterplan will guide Council in the delivery of better open spaces, footpaths and streets, and ensure future development considers the needs of the community.

Most importantly, we want the Mount Street precinct to remain a vibrant and attractive place to live, work and visit.
