    Council has prepared an initial draft landscape master plan to create a long term vision for Hudson Park.

    The Master Plan also aims to provide a suitable space for community events and passive recreation, integrate and enhance Kilmore Creek, acknowledge and celebrate local history, improve local connections to the main street, the neighbouring community services and contribute to the public realm.

    The draft plan is preliminary in nature and is for discussion purposes with the community. It has been informed by preliminary meetings with key stakeholders to understand the way Hudson Park is currently used and how these groups may...

    The Master Plan also aims to provide a suitable space for community events and passive recreation, integrate and enhance Kilmore Creek, acknowledge and celebrate local history, improve local connections to the main street, the neighbouring community services and contribute to the public realm.

    The draft plan is preliminary in nature and is for discussion purposes with the community. It has been informed by preliminary meetings with key stakeholders to understand the way Hudson Park is currently used and how these groups may want to see the park used in the future.

    These key stakeholders included the Taungurung Land & waters Corporation, Kilmore Bowls Club, KADRRA, the Miniature Rail, RSL and Scouts. The feedback from the 2014 Hudson Park Draft Master Plan has also helped inform the preliminary design.


  • Background information

    12 days ago

    Previous master plan

    A master plan was also prepared for Hudson Park in 2014, informing upgrades to the play space in 2016.

    Since then, preliminary work on a number of key initiatives such as the Wallan-Heathcote Rail Trail, the Kilmore Creek Landscape Masterplan, the Kilmore Community Services Hub and the strategic recommendations from The Town Centre Plan and Kilmore Structure Plan has meant that the 2014 master plan requires review.

    Other strategic links

    In order to respond pro-actively to Kilmore’s forecast growth and the critical need to plan for this in a way that responds to the community’s requirements and aspirations, Mitchell Shire Council undertook the Kilmore 3764 Project, a strategic planning exercise which produced the Kilmore Structure Plan and Kilmore Town Centre Plan to guide future growth.

    The need to prepare a Landscape Master Plan for Hudson Park is one of the projects identified by the Kilmore Town Centre Plan. Preparing a Master Plan also supports the objectives of the Kilmore Structure Plan.
