Healthy Streets Demonstration Grants program
In 2022/23, we are planning to work with another two councils on Healthy Streets Demonstration projects. See our flyer and application form.
The projects will use the Healthy Streets Design Check Australia to score project areas before and after changes and lead to the development of case studies, increase understanding of the healthy streets approach and engage the community.
