The Expression of Interest (EOI) process to manage and use part or all of the former Kyneton Primary School site opened on Friday 28 February 2020.

The EOI process aims to attract realistic proposals from interested parties to manage and attract varied uses for the premises that benefit the community.

A community consultation process in 2018 found a strong preference for the premises to become a hub for the community.

EOIs are sought from organisations, groups or individuals with the skills, experience and vision to create a vibrant, sustainable place in the heart of Kyneton.

This is an important step in ascertaining what interest there is in managing the site, to help determine the best future use.

Applications will be evaluated by a panel who will select a preferred respondent for future management and use of part or all of the site. The information used by the panel to evaluate applications is described in the Expression of Interest documents.

The 1.2 hectare site, located at 7-15 Baynton Street, includes heritage and non-heritage buildings and a large outdoor green space that adjoins the town square.

The site is managed by the Victorian School Building Authority.  DELWP is managing the EOI process on behalf of the Victorian Government.

For all enquiries, please contact

As stated in the Invitation for Expressions of Interest, the final decision rests with the relevant landholding Minister. The EOI process and associated information is commercial in confidence. There will not be any comment about information associated with the EOI submissions or outcomes until a final decision has been made.

The timeline for the site to be in public hands will be dependent on the recommended management and/or use of the site and the complexities or otherwise of putting these arrangements in place.
