Revitalisation of Hamilton CBD


Hamilton’s CBD is the premier retail and services precinct in Southern Grampians Shire. Little investment has been made in this space in the last 30 years (Gray Street) with other streets not upgraded for over 50 years.

Southern Grampians Shire Council endorsed the Hamilton CBD Activation Masterplan in May 2020. The focus of the concept designs is Melville Oval, Lonsdale Street and Gray Street, as well as other connecting streets and laneways. The designs explore options to improve walking and cycling, introduce more public art and signage, better public spaces and parking, and improved trees and landscaping.

With work on Melville Oval and Cox Street now underway, it is timely to undertake detailed design of Hamilton CBD key streets and laneways to finalise costings and project delivery to enhance visitor experience, amenity and access for the aged and disabled.


To progress the redevelopment of the Hamilton CBD, detailed designs and drawings are required to provide a robust costing to inform future investment by Council and avoid any missteps in the project implementation.

The documentation should include:

• Detailed feature survey and onsite measurements, geotechnical investigations, hydrological investigations, location of underground services and any sampling and testing required to develop suitable plans, designs and drawings.
• Detailed engineering design of the project, including detailed geometric design, pavement design, street scape design, parking design and street light design.
• Detailed design of underground stormwater drainage and shared path in the project area.
• Detailed design of traffic control devices, signage and line marking.
• Detailed design of roadside furniture, roadside environment and public open spaces.
