We're calling on a second round of submissions for the Draft King and Queen Street Masterplan, Wallan, to inform all submitters - and even those who missed out the first time - of the next steps

After reviewing a number of submissions from the first round which closed in August 2020, we decided to investigate a number of the projects within the Masterplan.

We've developed a Draft Masterplan for the King and Queen Street precinct area to help guide development and growth over the next few decades.

So, join us at a face to face drop in session to discuss the changes we've made to the Masterplan, or view the fact sheets under Documents:

So what are we proposing in the draft of the Masterplan?

  • The potential to open a new open space park for the community
  • New roads to link Watson Street and William Street to improve connectivity
  • A shared footpath to connect the Community Park with Mittagong Creek and expand accessibility in Wallan
  • More residential options for a growing community

The King and Queen Street precinct is one of several planned residential growth areas in Wallan, which will cater for much of the town’s planned growth.

As outlined in the Draft Masterplan, Mitchell Shire is forecast to house more than 128,000 residents by 2040. This means about 447 homes or dwellings will need to be built each year to allow this many people to call Wallan home.

The Draft Masterplan proposes also more road connections to the newly funded completion of the Watson Street Diamond Interchange project.

The precinct is bounded by Windham Street to the west, William Street to the north, Mittagong Creek to the east, and the Wallan Creek, Watson Street and existing development to the south. The precinct was identified as a priority project area in the Wallan Structure Plan as it is located close to Wallan's commercial hub, shopping centres, schools and Hudson Park.

This $50,000 project is funded by the Victorian Government's Growing Suburbs fund.

Submissions are public documents and may form part of meeting agendas and minutes. Therefore, your name, locality, and the details of your submission will become part of the public record. In order for your submission to be considered, you must provide your name, address, and contact email.

Council will take further submissions and feedback on the Draft Masterplan until Friday 6 August 2021.

  • About the Draft Masterplan

    supporting image

    The Draft King and Queen Street Masterplan is now out for community consultation and we want to hear from you.

    The King and Queen Street is highlighted as part of the Wallan Structure Plan and is recognised as a key future development hub.

    So what are we proposing in the draft of the masterplan?

    - A potential to open a new open space park for the community
    - New roads to link Watson Street and William Street to improve connectivity
    - A shared footpath to connect the Community Park with Mittagong Creek and expand accessibility in Wallan
    - More residential options for a growing community

    The King and Queen Street precinct is one of several planned residential growth areas in Wallan, which will cater for much of the town’s planned growth.

    As outlined in the draft master plan, Mitchell Shire is forecast to house more than 128,000 residents by 2040. This means about 447 homes or dwellings will need to be built each year to allow this many people to call Wallan home.

    This Masterplan is a follow on from work previously prepared for the Wallan King and Queen Street area. It was commissioned to provide the next level of detailed planning for the area, to assist Council and landowners/developers in how the area needs to be developed and future opportunities.

    Whilst this Masterplan is not being prepared as a Development Plan, the Masterplan can provide Council and developers/ landowners with the framework to enable them to complete the required work to continue development.

    The plan implements the vision for the area that has been developed through the Wallan Structure Plan and earlier strategic projects and ensures that development is provided in an integrated and connected way
