Sunshine Health, Wellbeing and Education Precinct
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA), in partnership with Brimbank City Council and state government agencies, has prepared a draft plan to guide development within the Sunshine Health, Wellbeing and Education Precinct (SHWEP).
SHWEP includes approximately 67 hectares of land in St Albans, centred on the Sunshine Hospital including the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital. The precinct is bounded to the north by Stony Creek, to the east and south by the M80 Western Ring Road and to the west by St Albans Road and the Sunbury railway corridor. The area is centred on the Sunshine Hospital and its existing transport corridors, including Ginifer Railway Station.
The plan will allow new land uses in some parts of the precinct, whilst enabling additional jobs in the health, wellbeing and education sectors, and improving the local streetscapes and environment.
A draft plan has been informed by background technical studies prepared in consultation with council and state government agencies and with input from a Strategic Plan Reference group.
