Feedback sought on Wonthaggi Activity Streetscape Master Plan
Bass Coast Shire Council is seeking community feedback on a new detailed plan to revitalise the connectivity and character of the Wonthaggi township.
Urban designers, Hansen Partnership, have prepared a Master Plan for the Wonthaggi Activity Centre Streetscape to help recreate ‘streets for people’ with improved pedestrian access, to activate and better connect the town centre through flexible and future-proofed design solutions. This will reinvigorate the character of Wonthaggi, as identified by the Wonthaggi Activity Centre Plan and Wonthaggi Access and Movement Study. Bass Coast Mayor Michael Whelan said community input was vital to help shape the Wonthaggi Activity Centre Streetscape Master Plan, to ensure it meets the needs and expectations of locals.
“This Master Plan will guide the future of the Wonthaggi township and help us to reach important strategic goals, including more sustainable transport options, incentives to ride and walk, protected bike lanes for mobility scooters, safe pedestrian access and adequate car parking,” Cr Whelan said.
“We encourage community members to share their views about the plan at our consultation events in February. We also invite feedback in writing via online submission on Engage Bass Coast.”
The study area for the Wonthaggi Activity Centre Streetscape Master Plan is bound by Murray Street to the north, Watt Street to the south, Bass Highway/McKenzie Street to the east and Biggs Drive/Billson Street to the west.
Community consultation events will be held at Apex Park on Murray Street, Wonthaggi on:
- Wednesday, 15 February 2023 from 10am to 12 noon.
- Saturday, 18 February 2023 from 9am to 11am.
- Monday, 20 February 2023 from 3pm to 5pm.
