YOUtilised Laneways Program

Between September 2017 and March 2018 we anticipate seeing exciting changes as Property Owners, Business Owners and City of Gold Coast collaborate to refresh Davison Lane, as part of the CBD Program Laneway Activation Program.

These works are aimed at further improving the street amenity by way of a capped funding opportunity to eligible applicants.

The funding grant being offered in the ‘CBD Program: Davison Lane Improvement Grant’ is a targeted initiative assisting property and business owners to improve their building adjoining Davison Lane in time for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Lunar New Year 2018, and Southport’s 100 year anniversary.

The Laneway Improvement Guide aims to encourage and fund improvements such as:

  • Painting murals and artwork on walls and roller doors
  • Implementation of signage, including illuminated signage
  • Installation of lighting
  • Introducing greenery such as vertical gardens and window planter boxes

Please refer to Concepts for Gold Coast CBD YOUtilised Laneways for ideas and inspiration.

If you are interested in this initiative and have not yet received information, or would like to clarify any information received, please contact the CBD Office on 1300 223 832.

More information including key dates, eligibility criteria and grant amounts, and terms and conditions are available in the CBD Program – Davison Lane Improvement Grant.

Applications can be submitted to the CBD Office as soon as possible – no further applications will be accepted after Friday, 27 November 2017.
