Wattle Glen Station Car Park

Planning Design Construction Complete

Summary

The Victorian Government is delivering new car parking spaces at Wattle Glen Station.

The new car park will feature improved CCTV and lighting as well as more bicycle parking facilities.

The project is being delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Project and funded by the Victorian Government.

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 6 September 2021, with feedback captured through the Victorian Government’s online engagement platform Engage Victoria, as well as mail and email.

What we heard

Urban design

Submissions covered urban design and landscaping, with an emphasis on the design protecting rural vistas and the landscape character of Wattle Glen.

Location

The location of the new car spaces were also raised, noting an interest to retain new spaces within the existing station precinct

Flora and fauna

Lastly, a regular theme of comments was protection of existing flora and fauna at the project site.

Next Steps

Your feedback has been included in a public consultation summary reports which informs the Minister for Planning’s assessment of the projects under Clause 52.03. Your feedback has also been provided to the design and project teams for consideration as the final designs are confirmed.

Once the design for each car park has been finalised, we’ll share it publicly.
