Wallan Station Street
Wallan Station Street Masterplan
Mitchell Shire Council is preparing a Masterplan and Infrastructure Framework for the Wallan Station Street Precinct. A concept design for the Railway Station has also been prepared for advocacy purposes.
We are now at a stage of the project where we would like to have initial consultation with landowners and residents. The main purpose of this initial consultation is to test the ideas and vision that we have and to encourage you to think about the future development of the precinct and how we can collectively deliver on the vision.
Railway Station Concept Design
Wallan Railway Station is currently the only station within the urban growth area of Mitchell Shire, which is expected to grow towards 200,000 people over the next few decades. This level of growth will a have significant impact on the number of passengers travelling through the station and put pressure on the current infrastructure and services provided by the station.
The Railway Station Concept Design has been prepared to reflect state and local policy and inform timely investment over the medium and long term.
We are currently looking for feedback from agencies, landowners and residents on this design before we finalise the document. The design will be used to inform the Station Street Masterplan, the Wallan East Precinct Structure Plan and to advocate for timely upgrades to the railway station.
Wallan Station Street Precinct Masterplan and Infrastructure Framework
Mitchell Shire Council have commenced work on the Wallan Station Street Masterplan and Infrastructure Framework. With prime access to the railway station, there are opportunities to leverage investment and transport improvements that will drive the growth of Wallan and the northern region.
There are a number of sub-precincts under discussion, from a higher density mixed use precinct in the south to a medium and low density residential precinct further north.
We are currently undertaking early consultation with landowners in this precinct. This Masterplan will deliver a vision for the transformation of the precinct, as it will play a pivotal role in the realisation of the development of the greater Wallan East Precinct.
