Stage 2 (complete): Macmillan Precinct Concept Plan

The precinct Concept Plan is a high-level guide for the detailed Masterplan (stage 3). It is based on community feedback from residents, local businesses, sporting clubs, community groups, and facility operators, and further guides the Town’s response to identified issues and needs at the precinct from our community’s values and priorities.

The Concept Plan builds on more than six months of community consultation and draws together the best of three co-designed scenarios to set a clear direction for the future. It is not the final plan but will guide and direct a detailed Masterplan.

The focus of the precinct will be the upgraded John Macmillan Park and new community hub.

Combing Vic Park Arts, Library, Community Centre, Leisurelife, Bowls and more, the hub will be designed to meet the unique needs of our community, both today and into the future.


East of John Macmillan Park, the precinct will transition into a lively and dynamic network of intimate urban lanes and quirky mid-rise buildings filled with art, non-profit space, cafes, residences and workshops. This urban space will complement, rather than compete with Albany Highway.


To the west, the noise of the highway and bustle of civic activity will fade as the precinct gently transitions into its quiet residential surrounds. Here, low-rise townhouses and apartments offer residential living, aged care and passive community services in a tranquil, leafy setting.
