Sunshine Precinct

The Sunshine Precinct will become the centre of Melbourne’s booming west providing key opportunities to boost employment, investment and liveability through planning.

Underpinned by transport connections to Melbourne’s CBD, Melbourne Airport Rail, the Suburban Rail Loop and regional rail network, the Sunshine Precinct will leverage from the $20 billion investment in infrastructure in Melbourne’s West.

The Sunshine Precinct will build on the area’s existing strengths in healthcare, education and manufacturing to develop a vibrant urban environment that provides high quality affordable housing and strong employment growth.

With Sunshine’s population expected to more than double over the next 30 years, the Victorian Government released a Precinct Opportunity Statement for Sunshine to give government, the community and investors the confidence about how the Sunshine Precinct will grow and develop over time.

Much of forecast growth and change in the Sunshine Precinct will be centred around three distinctive hubs - Sunshine Station, Sunshine CBD and Albion Quarter.

Community Reference Group

The Department of Transport and Planning and partner agencies formed a Community Reference Group (CRG) to provide a forum for consultation and information-sharing during the development of the Sunshine Precinct.

The CRG helps us to better understand how we can achieve the best outcomes for the Sunshine Precinct, and their feedback will inform planning and development of the Precinct over time.

The group includes community and business members, key local stakeholders, Brimbank City Council representatives, local members of parliament, and representatives from Rail Projects Victoria and the Department of Transport and Planning. Find out more on our Engage Victoria website.
