Traralgon Activity Centre Plan

The Traralgon Activity Centre Plan project aims to plan for the future growth of the Traralgon town centre over the next 20 years. It is one of several strategic planning projects that Latrobe City Council is undertaking to plan for Traralgon’s future.

sketched plans for the Traralgon Activity Centre Plan

A draft Key Directions Report was developed in 2011 containing 18 Key Directions. Council resolved to give a greater priority to two of the key directions listed in the draft report.

The two Key Directions of particular interest are:

  • Key Direction 4 -  Develop a Parking Precinct Plan and;
  • Key Direction 5 -  Provide integrated car parking solutions in appropriate locations.

The Traralgon Activity Centre Plan addressed these two Key Directions through Amendment C99 (formerly Amendment C94) Car Parking Overlay, by applying car parking controls to both Morwell and Traralgon’s CBDs.

The Traralgon Activity Centre Plan is now in Latrobe City Council’s 2016-2017 Business Plan for delivery by June 2017.

Stage 3 - Planning Scheme Amendment - UPDATE

Stage 3 will involve the exhibition and processing of the Planning Scheme Amendment based on the recommendations arising for the Traralgon Activity Centre Plan (TACP) Project. This has been on hold pending the outcomes of Amendment C87 Traralgon Growth Areas Review (TGAR), and progress of Key Directions 4 & 5 relating to car parking.

Amendment C99 (formerly Amendment C94) Parking Overlay, Morwell CBD and Traralgon CBD was gazetted in 2016. Through this process, the Key Directions 4 & 5 have been considered, and therefore relevant TGAR issues have also been addressed.

Council adopted Amendment C87 Part A and Part C at the 23 May 2016 Ordinary Council Meeting. The amendment is currently with the Minister for Planning for review and approval.

Council officers are currently assessing the process for progressing Stage 3.
