Penola Main Street Masterplan & Placemaking Strategy

The Wattle Range Council has engaged WAX Design to develop a masterplan and placemaking strategy for the Penola Main Street.

The project aims to enhance and protect the unique character of the town’s main street, encouraging increased activation, story-telling and cultural representation and providing a welcoming space for residents, businesses and visitors.

We encourage you to get involved and be part of a collaborative planning and design process to help shape and develop the masterplan for the Penola Main Street.

Community Survey

Wattle Range Council together with Wax Design are committed to moving forward with the Penola Main Street Masterplan and Placemaking Strategy. As a result of the cancellation of the drop-in design sessions due to the COVID-19 social distancing requirements, an online survey has been developed to continue with the community consultation phase of this project.

The survey will assist the project team to gain a better understanding of what makes Penola a great place and what opportunities exist to enhance the Town Centre in the future. The results of the survey will be used to prepare a draft design framework and concept plan to reflect the community’s vision for the Town Centre. The design framework will be made available for public comment.
