Neighbourhood Centre Revitalisation – Babbage Road Shops



In 2015 Council adopted the Neighbourhood Centres Revitalisation Program which approved the upgrade of 15 neighbourhood centres across the LGA.

Council undertook some initial community consultation in 2015/16 as Babbage Road was high on the priority list, however uncertainty over the LGA boundaries bought on by the prospect of Council mergers meant the project stalled.

Scope of works

Council have now completed a concept plan for the works. View the concept plan (pdf. 1002KB).

The works include:

  • Upgraded footpaths – New paving and concrete footpaths with increased accessibility.
  • Landscaping works – Garden beds to front side and rear of shops.
  • Fixtures – New seating.
  • Drainage – Regraded rear lane, new kerb and gutter and stormwater pits.


Council is seeking feedback on the design and welcomes comments up to 5 February 2020.
