Open space, access and movement
Community infrastructure such as outdoor furniture, picnic benches, public barbeques and shelters and bike facilities are proposed along the creek.
Right now there are numerous gaps in the paths network along the creek and the existing paths vary greatly in terms of material, condition and width.
The Landscape Master Plan aims to establish a continuous three-metre wide concrete path from Willowmavin Road to Tootle Street, and develop and implement consistent signage throughout the precinct. The signage will direct people to Kilmore’s facilities and highlight Kilmore’s indigenous and post-contact heritage which contributes to the town’s identity.
By producing a Cultural Heritage Management Plan and consulting with the Taungurung Land and Waters Council, the creek’s Eastern and Western Tributaries can be formally named. This may provide the opportunity to organise a cultural day or event that focuses on the Creek.
Consultation on the draft landscape master plan has finished. We are now preparing the next stages of this exciting project.
