Draft Railway Precinct Master Plan

Greater Shepparton City Council has engaged Spiire Australia Pty Ltd to prepare a Feasibility Study and Master Plan for the Shepparton Railway Precinct.

This project is jointly funded by Council, the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, V/Line and VicTrack.

As a snapshot, the vision for the project is:

“The Railway Precinct Master Plan will conceptualise the transformation of the Railway Precinct into an enticing gateway to the City of Greater Shepparton. This project will identify the actions and aspirations that will allow Shepparton to bring its Rail Station into the City both physically and symbolically. The Master Plan will showcase urban design and provide a blueprint to guide existing and future land use within the Precinct and surrounding area. This will lead to increased vitality of the CBD and encouraging the use of, and investment in, sustainable transport.”

A Technical Reference Group, which includes stake holders from various community and action groups, has been formed to assist Spire Australia Pty Ltd in gaining an understanding of the issues and opportunities for the precinct.

Council endorsed the Draft Railway Master Plan at the 21 February 2017 Ordinary Council Meeting and resolved to release it for public comment from 27 February 2017 to 3 April 2017.

Council is now inviting the public to inspect the Draft Master Plan and make a formal submission. You may inspect the document, free of charge, during office hours, at the office of the planning authority, Greater Shepparton City Council, 90 Welsford Street, Shepparton or through the link below.
