The Wantirna Health Precinct Masterplan Project

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is working in partnership with Knox City Council and State agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and VicRoads to establish a new integrated health precinct for Wantirna.

The preparation of a Masterplan for Wantirna Health Precinct will include specialist technical investigations as well as key stakeholder and community engagement. The plan will provide a framework to guide the site’s transition towards a specialised health precinct that includes a wide range of complementary medical services, employment, education and research facilities, training opportunities, accommodation, access and transport. The plan and supporting planning scheme amendment will also facilitate the future development of the VicRoads land which has been identified as surplus to VicRoads needs.

The VPA’s role for the project requires delivery of a masterplan, an infrastructure funding plan and planning scheme amendment documentation for Wantirna Health Precinct. At this stage of the project, an ‘Issues and Opportunities Report’ has been prepared and the community are invited to provide feedback on the Report. The community’s feedback will help to guide the planning initiatives around future improvements to public space, connectivity, site design and community facilities to be incorporated into the Masterplan. There will also be further opportunities for the community and stakeholders to review the draft Masterplan later in 2019 and through the formal exhibition phase.

Issues and Opportunities Report

The ‘Issues and Opportunities Report’ identifies the key issues and opportunities that relate to three key aspects of the Wantirna Health Precinct site:

  • Built Form,
  • Access and Movement, and
  • Landscape and Public Realm.
