Chapel Street | The journey to transform an icon continues

Following engagement activities in September 2023 to inform an overarching vision for Chapel Street, we now invite you to share your views on community aspirations that will help deliver the transformation of this iconic destination.

The City of Stonnington has a vision to transform Chapel Street into a thriving, creative and unique cultural place that fosters a strong sense of community pride and belonging. To achieve this we are developing a master plan for the street that will inform transformation projects now and into the future.

The first stage of the master plan development was completed in September 2023 when we asked the community to share their vision for Chapel Street and tell us what could be done to transform this iconic destination into one of the great streets of the world.

What we heard has helped inform a series of community-led vision statements that we now want to test and refine.

Five vision statements were identified for Chapel Street, with the overarching ambition being a destination that is:

  • Sustainable
  • Engaged
  • Inclusive
  • Connected
  • Managed

To help us progress to the next stage of the Chapel Street master plan development, we invite your feedback on the vision statements. These are key for us to deliver the transformation of Chapel Street – ensuring we can reflect the unique character of Forrest Hill, South Yarra, Prahran and Windsor.

The outcome of this consultation will give us the information we need to develop a draft master plan that we will share with the community in 2024.

Stage two: test and co-design
