Epsom Street Masterplan
Council will commence the development of the public open space area of the Epsom Street site.
The former Laverton Primary School site on Epsom Street was purchased by Council in 2014 to provide much needed public open space for the local community in addition to other potential users.
Council has been working alongside the community to develop a master plan for the use of the Epsom Street site which reflects the current and future needs of the people of Laverton.
The journey so far
In May 2014, Council purchased the former Laverton Primary School Site on Epsom Street, Laverton from the Department of Education and Training.
In late 2015, Council hosted a drop in session, the first step in the process of understanding the community's thoughts and ideas about the future of the site. Community members were invited to share their stories and thoughts, register to be kept informed, and get involved in the process.
Council held a further session in June 2016, to provide feedback on the consultation. Open Space and housing were the most desired responses, view the the consultation results(PDF, 3MB). Pedestrian links, access and safety area also key considerations for the master plan.
View information posters displayed at the June consultation: Site Assessment - Key issues(PDF, 3MB) and Future Site Opportunities(PDF, 4MB).
Community consultation for this project has now closed. You can view the finalised concept plan for the open space component of the reserve here.(PDF, 1MB)
