Re-Imagining Bairnsdale Master Plan


The Bairnsdale CBD Master Plan, ‘Re-imagining Bairnsdale’, was formally adopted by Council at the May 2013 East Gippsland Shire Council meeting. The Master Plan sets out a framework for the revitalisation of the CBD over the next 10 years, providing clarity about how the Bairnsdale CBD public realm will be improved over time and sets out a consistent approach to design elements and infrastructure. Actions include proposals for the improved design of important public spaces, a street tree planting program, public realm design guidelines, and a program for increasing the range of activities in core areas.

What will the project achieve?

The purpose of the Master Plan is to create a contemporary, vibrant urban centre in Bairnsdale with public spaces the support commercial and social activity and a more sustainable city. This will be achieved through creating:

  • A more attractive place to be
  • Safer and more welcoming gardens and community spaces
  • Spaces where people can walk and relax
  • Improved pedestrian, cycle and vehicle circulation
  • Safer ways to walk and cycle
  • The CBD
