Draft Greenhill Recreation Precinct Master Plan

Mitchell Shire Council is moving forward with the next phase of planning for the Greenhill Recreation Precinct in Wallan. In response to the growing need for both active and passive recreational facilities in and around Wallan, we are developing a draft master plan for this vibrant new community space. Located on the Northern Highway, the precinct will bring together the existing Greenhill Reserve (330 Northern Highway) and an adjacent site to the south (300 Northern Highway), creating a space designed for everyone to enjoy.

What's Planned?

The draft plans for the Greenhill Recreation Precinct propose a range of facilities that cater to diverse interests and age groups, including:

  • An integrated aquatic and indoor recreation facility,
  • Indoor and outdoor active multi-use courts for sports and activities,
  • Areas dedicated to passive open space activities and cultural experiences.

These facilities are designed to blend seamlessly with the unique natural environment of Wallan, particularly the iconic Green Hill volcanic cone, ensuring the precinct enhances the local landscape.

How to Get Involved

Community feedback on the plans is crucial as we shape the future of the Greenhill Recreation Precinct. We have developed two plans with proposed options Option A and Option B and we want to know what you think.

Review the Plans: Find detailed information about Option A and Option B in the documents section of this page. Each option has been carefully considered to best meet the community's needs while respecting the natural beauty of the area.

Share Your Thoughts: We invite you to share your preferences and ideas through our survey. Whether you're in favour of Option A, Option B, or have other suggestions, we want to hear from you.

Talk to Us: Prefer to discuss your thoughts in person? Visit us at one of our pop-up events – see details under the pop-up section on this page.

Pick up a hard copy: If you prefer to complete the survey on paper, you can download it here, hard copies are also available at any Customer and Library Service Centre . Alternatively, call us at 5734 6200 to request a copy be sent to you.

Closing Date

Don't miss your chance to have your say before consultation closes at 9am on Monday 13 May.

This is an opportunity for you to influence the development of a key community asset in Wallan. Your input will help inform the final design and layout of the Greenhill Recreation Precinct, ensuring it meets the community's needs and aspirations.

Next steps

Feedback Evaluation: We'll analyse community feedback to understand preferences and concerns.

Refine Plan: Incorporating feedback, we will refine a preferred option for the master plan.

Council Approval: The refined option will be submitted to Council for endorsement.

Business Case Development: Following endorsement, we'll develop a detailed business case to outline project feasibility and funding strategies.

Project Timeline: Anticipated delivery of the precinct is over the next 10-15 years, dependent on funding and planning outcomes.


*Please note, there will be further community consultation on the finer details of the precinct as the project evolves.
