Developing a plan for Hobart's Local Retail Precincts

In spring 2015, the City of Hobart appointed consultants to identify and prioritise streetscape upgrades for five retail precincts across Hobart's local neighbourhoods. Local traders staged pop-up events in main streets to test traffic interventions and streetscape improvements. Participatns, designed, organised, tested and proved their bold concepts, and the communities had a lot of fun in the process.

The Elizabeth Street traders group hosted an event that encouraged people to walk their dogs to town - 'Paws and Feet in the Street'. They tested a concept that provided more space in the footpath for people to socialise and interact.
