History of the Project 

The State Government declared the Tally Ho area as a Major Activity Centre. Tally Ho includes a major business park, with access to public transport and has opportunities to broaden the mix of land uses. The surrounding area also features a number of key sites that will be developed in the future and they will play a vital role in maximising the opportunities around Tally Ho.

The government’s long term vision and objectives for activity centres are set out in Melbourne 2030 . 

In this context, Tally Ho will be a focus for change. The City of Whitehorse in partnership with the community has prepared an Urban Design Framework to influence what form this change may take.

The Urban Design Framework explores ways to improve the Tally Ho area for residents, businesses and visitors and to provide direction for future development.

The Victorian Government has contributed funding for this project. This Urban Design Framework includes broad development principles for the whole area, as well as specific design guidelines for some of the major sites that are ready for redevelopment.
