Croydon Main Street strategic plan
With the aim of setting up goals for the precinct and pathways to achieve strong outcomes, we’ve partnered with the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) to work on a strategic plan for Croydon Main Street.
In collaboration with traders, who participated in four workshops, the precinct now has a well-designed plan which will roll out over the next five years.
The plan was valued at $40,000 but provided free of charge to the association. It is available to view upon request.
Creating a unique shopping experience
Based on our strategic plan, the Croydon Main Street Traders Association (CMSTA) aims to achieve the following goals:
- Work with key local partners to beautify the precinct through streetscaping
- Create an accessible, social, and safe community
- Activate night trading through various promotions
- Support and install art projects in the precinct.
Croydon Main Street enhancement plan
The enhancement plan, which the association is currently working through, will determine future furniture and paving renewal plans, as well as safer and more accessible connections. The revamp will not only provide Main Street with an updated look, but also future-proof the functionality for the benefit of traders and the wider community.
Croydon multi-level carpark
A new multi-level carpark is currently being built on Devon Street, centrally located behind Main Street and adjacent to Croydon train station.
The carpark will provide Croydon shopping precinct with 400 additional parking bays (including dedicated accessible parking); safe pedestrian access to and from local transport hubs, Main Street, and Croydon’s new town square; and Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) initiatives such as solar power and rainwater collection.
