Central city vitality and safety - How do we transform the city at night?

BK Ben Knight Public Seen by 40

What creates the conditions for a safe and vibrant city at night? What can we do to stimulate a thriving night-time economy without negatively impacting residents or communities?

Some things to consider might be:

  • The mix of activity that encourages diverse people to participate
  • Environmental design - what can spaces and furniture create?

Some of the most successful cities in the world i.e. New York , Melbourne and Sydney have planned for the development of a night time economy. We think Council should plan for this in a way that balances the economic and development interests of a dynamic central city with residential amenity and our strategic objective to be a people centered city.
