Georgetown Local Centre


We are working to improve the look and feel of Georgetown Local Centre. Our proposed upgrade includes street renewal and landscaping with a focus on creating public space for socialising and outdoor trade, with improved connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists.

The upgrades aim to:

  • Improve accessibility, safety and convenience for pedestrians and cyclists.
  • Improve driver visibility and safety.
  • Make improvements to infrastructure including drainage.
  • Create more space for people by building wider footpaths and a new plaza.
  • Improve the natural environment by providing more trees and landscaping.

These upgrades will benefit both businesses and residents – delivering a safer, more attractive place to visit, that attracts customers and presents an alternative to large shopping centres.


On 29 June 2021 the elected Council resolved to initiate a public domain upgrade for Georgetown under the Local Centres program. To find out more about the process for upgrading Local Centres view our process plan.

In 2021, we asked the local community what was most important about Georgetown Local Centre, and what could be improved. Almost 200 people had their say on what they love about Georgetown and what needs improving as summarised in our Engagement Report. Following this input from the community, we developed a draft Public Domain Plan. 

In late 2023 we invited the community to provide feedback on this draft plan. We're currently reviewing your feedback and will report back soon. Visit our Have Your Say page to find out more.
