The future is bright for Tarneit!

We’ve developed a Draft Tarneit Major Town Centre Urban Design Framework (UDF) to help shape the design, development and growth of the Tarneit Major Town Centre.

Right now, Tarneit is going through a period of rapid change and growth. The UDF will help to ensure the town centre meets the needs of the growing population in Tarneit with the centre ultimately providing a capacity of 8,000 jobs and a home to more than 10,000 people.

We're planning for Tarneit to become a hub of economic prosperity, that is beautifully designed with green corridors, and has the capacity to accommodate a centre for art, health and education. It will offer opportunities for everyone with recreational and retail development and housing while celebrating the area’s Indigenous and cultural heritage – making it a dynamic destination of choice.

The UDF will be a guide for staged development in the area and for attracting investment over the next 30 years.

Tarneit Character Areas

The design of the Major Town Centre is divided into nine different areas that each have their own character and purpose. Each area has had a concept design and artistic impression created to highlight how it may look in the future. Click through to each area below to find out more.
