Proposed development opportunity at Ormond Station

As part of the Victorian Government's commitment to remove 50 of the worst level crossings in Victoria, the congested and dangerous level crossing at North Road, Ormond has recently been removed.

The removal of the crossing and the construction of the new Ormond Station provides an opportunity for a mixed use development at a transport hub.

Draft planning controls to facilitate a mixed use development have been prepared.
