Hemmings Street Shopping Centre Streetscape Improvements
Council has recently undertaken a concept design and community consultation process for the Hemmings Street Neighbourhood Shopping Centre in Dandenong West. The aim of the project was to seek community feedback and ideas on how to improve the overall amenity and appearance of this shopping strip.

In recognition that there was no absolute preference for any one option over the others, a preferred design has been prepared that includes elements from the three options presented.
The final concept design will provide the basis for a funding application for Council’s 2019-20 City Improvement Program. If funding is secured it is anticipated that the project would be delivered in two stages.
Art on Hemmings Street Community Engagement
Alongside the street Shopping Centre Streetscape Improvements, Council is assessing how art and design can make Hemmings Street more vibrant and attractive.
We want to make sure local tastes and desires are considered and are seeking feedback on what types of art and design would best suit the streetscape.
A short survey is open to all residents in the vicinity of the street as well as those who regularly visit.
Please submit your feedback in our survey below.
This consultation ends on Sunday 23 February, 5pm.
