Jensen Planning + Design have been working with Mount Barker District Council since 2014 as Gawler Street evolves from a traditional shopping street into a more leisure focused heart for a fast growing town. This change is already underway with edgy new cafes and shops, and the installation of a ‘parklet’.

In 2015 we completed a Main Street Strategy for Gawler Street that contained 10 priorities for improving the main street. These include upgrades to the arrival points along the street, more seating and gathering places, better pedestrian crossings, refreshed landscaping, and the installation of new feature lighting. A team led by Jensen Planning + Design is now preparing detailed designs for the next phase of streetscape upgrade works.
