A draft plan to transform the Sunshine Health, Wellbeing and Education Precinct is open for public feedback. The precinct covers 67 hectares in St Albans, centred on the Sunshine Hospital and includes the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
The plan prepared by the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) in partnership with Brimbank council and state government agencies.
It covers the development of more health and education services in the precinct, along with shops and cafes, short-term accommodation, offices and housing. It also proposes how the precinct could potentially accommodate more than 7200 jobs by 2051.
The aim of the plan is to strategically guide the future growth and deliver significant improvement to the area.
We urge the Western Health community to have their say on this significant local development as these changes will steer the direction our community takes for decades to come.
Community members are being invited to a drop-in session to ask questions about the draft plan. The session will be held at St Albans Community Centre on Thursday, July 26, from 5.30-8pm.
Once feedback has been received, the VPA and Brimbank Council will update the draft plan if approved, the community and stakeholders will have another opportunity to provide further comment later this year.
Feedback on the draft plan can also be provided online at Brimbank Councils website, brimbank.vic.gov.au/ have-your-say until July 31.
