The Future Morwell Urban Revitalisation Plan was an initiative set to fully reshape Morwell, and funding was received after the Hazelwood mine fire.
“This State Government funded project is being led by Latrobe City Council, RMIT University and a steering group of community members. The project will deliver a series of five priority projects to reshape Morwell over the next three years”.
It is believed the draft project that outlines a transformation of Morwell is still yet to be fully backed by Latrobe City councilors three years on.

The Future Morwell funding came about by the State Government following the Hazelwood mine fire. It has been three years since the announcement and still no movement of putting the plan into action.
A key theme of the Future Morwell draft plan is to rebrand Morwell as a town of gardens. Permanent garden beds, a town circuit and attractive gateway entrance are all part of the plan.
