Deer Park Corridor Urban Design Principles


The Deer Park Corridor Urban Design Principles (PDF 680KB) have been prepared to establish a consistent message from Council and provide certainty to the design and delivery teams when negotiating appropriate outcomes on rail-related projects along the Deer Park Rail Corridor.

The urban design principles

  • deliver holistic integrated redevelopments of station precincts
  • create a ‘sense of place’ for the local community with a distinctive character specific to Brimbank
  • design legible station precincts
  • maximise economic development opportunities
  • maximise community connectivity across the corridor
  • integrate local and regional cycle connections
  • engage with the community as part of the decision-making process
  • create a sustainable corridor
  • prioritise safety as a design consideration
  • minimise physical, visual and acoustic amenity impacts

These principles guide the development of

  • three at-grade level crossing removals
  • two new stations, and
  • the rail line “quadruplication” and electrification to Melton and Wyndham Vale
