Background

The Timboon Precinct Plan arises from the Positioning Timboon and Simpson Structure Plan, 2020, the Community Plan, from Grow and Prosper, as well as community interest, to support the growth of the town, with a consistent vision, and to enhance tourism opportunities within the town.

There have been a number of approaches recently from community and businesses with regard to the use and function of the precinct around Powers Creek, the village green, Senior Citizens and Railway Shed in the centre of Timboon. Increasingly, the area is being seen as a tourism/events area and is a central hub at the intersection of the Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail and the Twelve Apostles Trail – Timboon to Port Campbell. While streetscape works and community planning projects have occurred, as well as private sector investment into the Railway Shed Distillery and the Ice-creamery, this has been without reference to an overall Masterplan or Urban Design Framework for the precinct or town. With multiple landowners and managers, it is important that a design and land use Framework be in place to ensure that future public sector investment and community benefits are best realised. 

A Draft Precinct Plan

Engaging with the community and other key stakeholders has helped to establish a community-lead vision. Using the feedback received, a Draft Precinct Plan has now been prepared by the project team.
