Drouin Station car park – start of works notice March 2022

Engagement

To support the delivery of new and upgraded car parks at this site and the planning approvals process, we undertook a process of community consultation to ensure that the views of local residents and station users were considered.

Planning Approvals Consultation Summary

We invited local residents and interested stakeholders to provide feedback on the designs as well as key local values we should consider through detailed design. The public consultation period was open from 9 August until 24 August 2021, with feedback captured through the Victorian Government’s online engagement platform Engage Victoria, as well as mail and email.

What we heard

Improving traffic flow and access

You told us that improving traffic flow and access in the area, car park entrances and local road access is important.

Design

There was interest in the ‘look and feel’ of the car park including the layout, pavement and signs installed.

Safety

Safety for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians within the area was also raised as an important aspect to consider within the design.

Next Steps

Feedback was included in a public consultation summary report which informed the Minister for Planning’s assessment of the projects under Clause 52.03. Feedback was also provided to the design and project teams for consideration for the final design.
