Ratio’s town planning consultants were engaged in the statutory planning processes for the new library building, town centre landscape, existing senior citizens building demolition, vegetation removal and pedestrianisation of a cul-de-sac.
This community space is located on a brownfield site in Drysdale’s busy town centre between a supermarket, roundabout, car park and local shops. The area serves the residents of Drysdale, Clifton Springs, Curlewis and northern Bellarine suburbs.
The long-term strategic vision for the site aimed to improve pedestrian experiences for the town centre and create a space where visitors can meet and stay. Key to the project’s success for the City of Greater Geelong was the protection of the area’s significant heritage buildings and distinctive 50-year-old lemon-scented gum trees.
