Mansfield Shire Council has recently commenced an exciting new project to establish a vision and provide a Master Plan with artist impressions for the Mansfield Station Precinct.
The Mansfield Station Precinct is a 13 hectare site on the main approach to town. Bounded by Maroondah Highway to the south, Yenckens Hardware to the east, Withers Lane to the west, the Station Precinct site is on Crown Land with Mansfield Shire as the Committee of Management.
The Station Precinct is a lineal precinct that includes the station building – occupied by the Mansfield Historical Society, platform and goods shed as well as the head of the Great Victorian Rail Trail, the Mansfield Visitor Information Centre and Mullum Wetlands.
If appropriately developed the precinct would appeal to the high number of visitors to the region and importantly provide new opportunities for our engaged local community to interact with unique and exciting spaces in their town.
SJB Urban has been appointed to undertake a participatory and collaborative approach involving key stakeholders in the development of a Master Plan for the site.
