Junction Urban Master Plan Project

About the Junction Urban Master Plan

The Junction Urban Master Plan has been prepared by Darebin Council together with the community to improve the attractiveness and liveability of public space in the Junction. The Plan presents a vision to transform the Junction over the next ten years into a place that is green, community focused and memorable for its architectural contrasts and unique urban feel.

The Plan supports Planning Scheme Amendment C137 Plenty Road Corridor Land Use and Urban Design Framework which sets high quality standards for future development on privately owned land in the Junction.

The Junction Urban Master Plan was endorsed by Darebin Council on Monday 7 April 2014.

 

Principles of the Junction Urban Master Plan

The Junction Urban Master Plan applies the following design principles to areas in the Junction including main streets, neighbourhood streets, transport gateways, laneways and more...

Green: Green the Junction with an emphasis on achieving sustainable design outcomes and quality street trees and plantings

Pedestrian priority: Encourage a pedestrian focus in the Junction and promote bike riding and sustainable transport

Movement: improve access and priority to public transport and advocate for improved public transport services

Safe and enjoyable: Improve safety and perceptions of safety in the local community

Community and business focused: Attract business and private investment to the Junction

Memorable: Foster a distinct and authentic urban character for the area that is memorable

Presentation: Support and integrate upgraded public space, infrastructure and amenity to create a lasting effect

 

Implementation

A preliminary implementation and action plan has been included in the Junction Urban Master Plan.

This financial year, approximately $132,000 will be invested in the Junction area including the installation of a pedestrian crossing, street tree planting and landscaping on High Street near Raglan Street and Showers Street. Operational programs including the Active Spaces Program will also run in the Junction. The Active Spaces Program supports creative new businesses to set themselves up in vacant shops and activate local streets.

Next financial year, works will be carried out to improve the intersection of High Street and Oakover Road. Green space will be incorporated into the streetscape and the road will become simpler to use.

$160,000 is also allocated for next financial year to support a landscape architect to provide detailed drawings of larger scale projects in the Junction. Other activity programmed for the area includes establishing a local Traders Association and other activities that strengthen local businesses.

Regular progress reports on the implementation of the Junction Urban Master Plan will be provided to Council during the lifetime of the Plan.
