Shepparton Health and Tertiary Education Precincts Action Plan
The Shepparton Health and Tertiary Education Precincts Action Plan (Action Plan) provides a framework to attract and align investment to grow Shepparton as a health and tertiary education destination. It aims to support the expansion of important health and tertiary education facilities, leading to increased employment opportunities and improved service provision for the benefit of the wider community.
The Action Plan recognises the need for a coordinated and collaborative approach to realising the health and tertiary education aspirations of the community, which has become increasingly important due to investment in the central business district hub, and expansion of health services and health-related tertiary opportunities in the Graham Street precinct.
The development of the Action Plan was overseen by a Project Working Group, which included representatives from Council, GOTAFE, La Trobe University and GV Health. One Collective Pty Ltd was engaged in February 2019 to conduct workshops between relevant stakeholders, government organisations, and health and educational institutions prevalent in the Shepparton area.
An Issues and Opportunities Report was prepared to summarise the feedback and issues raised during the workshops are available in the Shepparton: Health, Education and Innovation Precinct – The Vision (PDF).
