What is Better Places?

Hobsons Bay City Council has recently developed the Better Places program to provide a more holistic and integrated approach to thinking about and designing for change into the future. Better Places is a placed-based approach that focuses on overall ‘places’ rather than individual ‘pieces’ and provides a new model for how Council designs and delivers projects.

Better Places also aims to more actively involve the community in shaping the place they live in by helping to create a vision, set of principles and projects that reflects their values, ideas and priorities.

The future of Brooklyn and Altona North - Captured in a Place Guide

Better Places is focused on taking a more placed based approach - thinking in terms of overall ‘places’ rather than individual ‘pieces’ - and providing a new model for the way that Council designs and delivers projects.

After extensive consultation with our local community, the Better Places program has developed nine projects designed to make Brooklyn and Altona North better places to live, work and visit.

The draft Place Guide for Brooklyn and Altona North provides a summary of the visioning process undertaken, the community input and key findings and sets out the projects and improvements that will be undertaken into the future.
