Melton Town Centre Redevelopment

  • Completion Date14 December 2018

The Melton Town Centre has been 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.

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.

The work was completed in December 2018.
