East Bairnsdale/Lucknow

Structure Plan

Echelon were appointed by East Gippsland Shire Council to lead a multi -disciplinary team to develop a structure plan, infrastructure and implementation plan to guide the future development of the Precinct.

The structure plan will cater for the ongoing expansion of existing businesses including the regionally-significant Patties Foods manufacturing operations, as well as the development of other sites as part of a new employment node for the Shire. The plan will also provide for a new residential neighbourhood and a community hub.


The Plan identifies ways to enhance existing recreation areas and utilise the natural features of the precinct as green links. It also addresses a number of major drainage and civil infrastructure constraints facing the future development of the precinct. It will provide the framework for the assessment of planning applications or for the future planning scheme amendment.
