Project Information

Purpose

Council has engaged with the community to undertake a holistic approach to planning and design of the area. The final plan will guide future projects including asset renewals in the parkland and a future placemaking project focusing on improvements in Lorraine Avenue. Importantly the Master Plan will provide strong direction based on community values to guide future planning and capital works projects in the study area.

Overview

Council seeks to design and deliver a Master Plan for the Marcoola North Precinct. The project will be funded by the Streetscape Capital Works Program and Minor Capital Works Program. This includes a streetscape upgrade for Lorraine Avenue guided by placemaking.

Placemaking is a process to engage and collaborate with communities. This ensures meaningful and vibrant places are created that reflect their values.

Community engagement

The precinct masterplan will be developed in four phases:

  • Phase 1 - COMPLETE - Values and visioning - What do you love and value? What is your future vision?
  • Phase 2 - COMPLETE - Making a plan - Developing a draft Master Plan from the values and visioning
  • Phase 3 - COMPLETE - Have we got it right? - Have your say on the draft Master Plan
  • Phase 4 - UNDERWAY - Finishing and staging - Finalising the Master Plan

Where to from here

The draft Master Plan was out for public exhibition in June and early July 2022. The community was encouraged to review the draft Master Plan document to inform Council ‘Have we got it right?' Council is now considering all responses and will make any adjustments to the draft Master Plan for endorsement at a Council meeting late 2022.
