Macmillan Precinct Masterplan

The Town is calling for community input on the next phase of the Macmillan Precinct Redevelopment Project.

Macmillan Precinct

Located in the heart of East Vic Park, the Macmillan Precinct is home to many community facilities surrounding John Macmillan Park, including the Library, Community Centre, Leisurelife, Vic Park/Carlisle Bowls Club and Vic Park Centre for the Arts.

The Macmillan Precinct is an important community hub that services a wide range of residents, clubs and community groups, and the redevelopment project aims to future proof the precinct to meet changing community needs.

Masterplan

With the Community Charter and Concept Plan now finalised through stages 1 and 2 of the redevelopment project, the Town is progressing to Stage 3 – preparation of a detailed Masterplan.

The masterplanning process builds on the ideas proposed in the Concept Plan and looks at how the Precinct's public spaces and community facilities can be designed to best accommodate all users, as well as the cost and funding implications of all options.

Stage 3 incorporates several milestones, including the development of a Design Brief, and Bowls and Community Hub Option selection.

What now?

The project team have worked closely with key stakeholders, including Town officers and the MacMillan Precinct Working Group to develop four high-level Community Hub Concept Scenarios for the precinct.

The four scenarios investigate options for the Library, Leisurelife, Victoria Park Community Centre, Vic Park/Carlisle Bowls Club, arts and performance spaces, plus other areas.

Full details of the Concept Scenarios are available in the Community Hub Scenarios Summary Report. You can also view an online presentation from the design team here, which gives an overview of the draft Community Hub Scenarios.

Comments are invited on the proposed scenarios before a recommended option is presented to Council.
