Why we’re doing this

In 2020, we consulted our communities on ways to revitalise Oxford Street  while recognising its cultural and community significance. In 2021, we asked for feedback on proposed planning rules for the Oxford Street cultural and creative precinct.

We heard that people value the strong connection between Oxford Street and the LGBTIQA+ community. People asked if more could be done to keep Oxford Street a safe and welcoming hub, and celebrate the LGBTIQA+ history of the area.

What we’re doing

We listened to community feedback on aspirations, needs and concerns for Oxford Street, and have developed a draft LGBTIQA+ social and cultural place strategy.

The draft strategy sets out principles and priorities to recognise, preserve, and promote the significant connection the LGBTIQA+ community has with Oxford Street.

Priorities

Five key priorities have been identified as the framework for the place strategy:

The draft strategy contains a series of actions for each priority area that will be driven and delivered collaboratively between the City and the community.
