Melton Town Centre Redevelopment

The Melton Town Centre is being transformed to create a vibrant, attractive, pedestrian-accessible and safe precinct. The project will strengthen the town centre by making clear pathways to encourage people movement, creating spaces that enable both passive and organised uses, and facilitating opportunities for local businesses to engage in streetscape trade. Works completed to date include a renovated amphitheatre and visitor information centre, a new sheltered taxi rank, civic lawns and a tree-lined promenade that connects High Street to the Melton Library and Learning Hub. 

The outcome will be a people-focused space that attracts all ages and abilities and encourages the stimulation of local businesses. It is anticipated that the completed Melton Town Centre Redevelopment Project will be a proud asset for the local community.

Stages 1, 2 and 3 are now complete and the last two stages will commence in April 2018 and is expected to be completed in December 2018.
