Have your say on the Koroit Youth Space Development Plan

The Development Plan considers three priorities for the design: pedestrian safety, improved neighbour amenity and controlled vehicle movement. 

The objective of the development plan is to reinforce the skate park as a Youth Space and integrate it with the Rail Trail precinct. 

Key improvements to the site proposed include:

  • The advocating for a reduced speed zone along Bourke Avenue – reduced to 40km per hour, preventing parking along Bourke Avenue and the inclusion of a path network to provide safe access to both sites.
  • Rationalising the Station Street/Bourke Avenue intersection to improve safe traffic movement.

About the Youth Space

Council officially opened the Koroit Skate Park in May 2017.  The community has welcomed the facility with the enthusiastic use of the skate park along with the neighbouring children’s playground across the road at the former Koroit rail station.  Increased visitation to the area has raised concerns regarding safe pedestrian access, parking and vehicle movement, spectator comfort and the need for landscaping to consider the amenity and a buffer for neighbours.

Landscape Architect David Turley has undertaken the development design for the Koroit Youth Space, delivering a confirmed direction for the Bourke Avenue site and its relationship with the surrounding areas including the rail trail precinct, neighbouring residences and community road and path network.
