Community feedback needed


The state government has commenced planning work to transform a former industrial area in Melbourne’s west into a community with more housing, jobs and services.

The Albion Quarter is a key area in the Sunshine Precinct, which has been identified in the state governments Housing Statement as a priority precinct for development into affordable housing and jobs close to public transport.

The area includes the upgraded Albion Station extending to the four quarters either side of the railway station and north of Ballarat Road, and within the suburbs of Albion, Sunshine North and Sunshine.

The Government has commenced work on a Structure Plan that will identify local infrastructure needed to improve the amenity and accessibility of the area and make it an attractive place for investment and liveability.

With Albion Station to be connected to the Metro Tunnel, the current and future Albion community will benefit from improved access, connectivity, and frequency of services, when it opens in 2025.

People can find out more about the future of the Albion Quarter and have their say at community engagement pop-ups:

Victoria University, Sunshine Campus, Wednesday, June 12, from 11am-1pm.

And Albion Station, Tuesday, July 23, from 7am-9am
