A draft master plan for the Coldstream Station area will be released for community engagement and feedback, following Tuesday night’s Council meeting.
The draft Coldstream Station Master Plan has been assembled by Council staff to recommend future infrastructure improvements to the site on Station Street.
Council was recently successful in receiving $539,680 in grant funding through the State Government’s Growing Suburbs fund towards the implementation of the master plan’s projects.
A major component in the draft plan is a pump track, where community members, young people and families can practice bike riding on a small track suitable to beginner-level skills and experience.
The Coldstream Station site sits along the Yarra Valley Trail – which currently spans from Lilydale to Yering and will soon be extended to Yarra Glen.
A path is also being constructed to connect the station site to Maroondah Highway and the wider town, addressing the lack of footpath connection to the station site.
The draft master plan will be shared with the community, to gather their feedback on the projects within, before the plan returns to Council for further review and endorsement.
Councillors unanimously voted to release the draft plan for community engagement.
