Sheffield Streetscape Public Consultation

Council is planning to reconstruct and revitalise Main Street, Sheffield between Henry Street and Spring Street.

This section is 400 metres long and is significantly longer then the last stage immediately to the west.

Leon Lange of Lange Design Landscape Architecture was engaged by Council to complete the concept design and consider suggestions made during the Sheffield Refresh Project, feedback from targeted groups including the newly formed Kentish Tree Planting Committee and Council officers.


The concept has been developed with regard to the existing streetscape, known issues and site constraints and is considered an attractive well-balanced solution.

The potential construction costs identified by Lange Design are likely exceed $1m.  Subject to detailed design and a more accurate estimate Council will need to consider staging the works over more than one financial year.


Residents are welcome to make a representation in respect of the ‘Streetscape Concept Plan’ prepared by Lange Design, the Council report and its recommendations.

Representations must be submitted in writing to the General Manager, Kentish Council, PO Box 63, Sheffield 7306 or emailed to   All representations must be received by close of business 2 April, 2019.
