Known for its mixed use and concentration of activities during the day and night the Deane Street Precinct boasts opportunities for local employment, education, cafes, restaurants, retail, recreation and cultural activity.
In February 2022 Burwood Council submitted a $500,000 funding application to the Department of Planning and Environment as part of the Streets as Shared Spaces Round 2 Program to bring the Deane Street Precinct Transformation project to life. In April 2022 Council was advised its proposal was successful.
This project will trial the reimagination of our streets as places for people, whether it's new walking paths, turning asphalt into art or trialing new ways to use our streets for outdoor dining and passive recreation.
The project will deliver increased public open space for community interaction, socialising,
dining and recreation and seeks to fulfil a broad range of social, economic, health and
environmental needs for our community.
