A study was conducted in 1999 to improve the Glendalough railway station precinct in order to promote public transport and develop the area. The study was reviewed again in 2005, with additional community consultation taking place after. Find out more about the study.
Glendalough station precinct urban design and implementation study
On 16 November 1999, the City of Stirling Council the Glendalough station precinct urban design and implementation study (PDF).
The aims of the study are to:
• Encourage the use of public transport
• Provide an attractive pedestrian environment
• Promote a mix of land uses in and around the train station
• Improve the streetscape to promote new development on private land
• Create a town-centre environment around the train station.
The study was approved by the Council in 2002.
Based on the study, the following changes were then implemented:
• Upgrading the triangle park
• Rezoning of lots on the southern side of Scarborough Beach Road from 'residential' to 'mixed residential'
• Rezoning of lots on the western side of the freeway from 'general industrial' to 'mixed business', allowing for land uses such as showrooms and offices.
The study was reviewed by the Council in 2005. Please download the Glendalough stations precinct study review report (PDF) which contains information about the review recommendations, including:
• The establishment of 5 quadrants in and around the precinct
• Consultation with landowners in the Glendalough Station Precinct to determine support for the revised approach
• A revised plan for the Glendalough station precinct be prepared and submitted to Council
• That discussions be initiated with the state agencies to discuss opportunities for partnership arrangements and cost sharing.
A brochure for community consultation (PDF) was also circulated, providing information on:
• The changes already implemented
• The new proposals
• Details and maps of the 5 proposed quadrants.
The City has also conducted 2 workshops with landowners on the eastern side of the freeway in 2006. Please download the reports of these workshops below, which cover:
• Level of support for a change of land use from industrial uses to a mix of office, commercial and residential uses and streetscape enhancement
• Land uses that landowners would you like to see in the future
• What landowners see as the positive benefits of the changes
• What landowners see as the negative impacts of the changes
• The level of support for a new system which requires contributions or ceding of land from landowners for new infrastructure and roads, in return for rezoning and incentives such as parking concessions.

The City is currently preparing another study of the Glendalough, Herdsman and Osborne Park areas as part of the Scarborough Beach Road Activity Corridor Study. Thus study consists of:
