Greater Shepparton City Council are calling for submissions to the Shepparton Railway Station Pedestrian Overpass Concept Plan, October 2018 and the Shepparton Railway Station Shared Pathway Linkages Concept Plan, June 2018.
The Concept Plans are the first step towards releasing the Shepparton Railway Precinct Master Plan 2017, a key part of the Shepparton CBD Revitalisation Project which has also delivered the Shepparton Court Precinct Development, and the Vaughan Street and Maude Street Redevelopment.
Thr Project is set to cement the city as the major industry, employment and service hub for the Hume region, which will provide construction and permanent employment opportunities, draw private sector investment and new businesses to the region.
Implementation of a pedestrian overpass will be funded through investment by the State Government, creating an attractive and practical gateway into Shepparton, and promoting the regeneration of an under-utilised area.
The Shared Pathway Linkages Plan aims to enhance tourism, as well as provide residents with a safe and convenient access to local facilities and services, encouraging active transport modes.
In preparing Concept Plans, Council is seeking to better understand the opportunities and constraints of the proposed projects, and is keen to hear ideas and feedback from all interested residents, businesses and organisations.
Submissions can be made by post to Greater Shepparton City Council, Locked Bag 1000, Shepparton VIC 3632, by emailing [email protected], or via the online form on at the link below.
The exhibition period is open until 18 February 2019.
