The Palmwoods Streetscape Project will deliver the first stage of the Palmwoods Public Domain Master Plan that was endorsed by council at its November 2014 Ordinary Meeting. The Palmwoods Master Plan was accepted by 98% of community members who provided feedback during the master planning phase.

Project scope

The Palmwoods Streetscape Project includes the construction of a new town square in the heart of Palmwoods. The project represents the first stage of the Palmwoods Public Domain Master Plan. 

It is a green community space for people to gather in the heart of Palmwoods, adjacent to the Memorial Hall.

It provides a central meeting point for festivals and community celebrations - with seating, shade and outdoor dining opportunities - and  improves pedestrian links through the town, connecting the three shopping precincts on Margaret, Main and Little Main Streets. 

Streetscape works on Main Street and Hill Street are connected by an all access timber boardwalk in a grove of mature Piccabeen palms, named the Piccabeen Walk after the tree that Palmwoods takes its name from.

Other key features of this area include retaining walls, relocation of services, road widening in Main Street and construction of a new ramped access from Main Street up to Little Hill Street. This project aims to maximise the amount of level space available for community use while complementing the Palmwoods town character.

Project update

Major construction of the Palmwoods Streetscape Project is complete and took place from July - December 2017.


Regular updates are provided to residents, businesses and community representatives during major construction work.
