Consultation information

Hume City Council is planning to enhance Melba Avenue as a local destination for outdoor dining and convenience shopping.

The improvements to Melba Avenue will focus on pedestrian and vehicle safety while providing an attractive setting for outdoor dining and for social connections.

The proposal for Melba Avenue includes:

  • New street trees
  • Enhanced outdoor dining environment
  • New outdoor furniture
  • Improved footpath and pedestrian access
  • Carpark re-alignment and improved accessibility
  • Installation of a raised pedestrian platform road crossing

The streetscape design aims to retain established trees where possible, however the removal of one established tree is required. This tree will be replaced by two trees of a suitable species in the same location. An overall net gain of approximately 14 trees and additional shrubs will be delivered by the Melba Avenue streetscape plan.
