MPAC to 2040 - Moonee Ponds Activity Centre


Thank you to all who provided feedback on the MPAC to 2040 – Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Local Plan. Submissions for this consultation have closed.

We are now in the process of reviewing all the submissions we received, and we will use the information collected during the consultation period to finalise the Local Plan, background documents and planning controls. Our intention is to brief Council on the consultation findings and proposed changes before seeking an endorsement mid-year to begin a formal Planning Scheme Amendment process.

There will be another opportunity for you to review and provide feedback on the Local Plan, background documents and proposed planning controls in this next stage of the process.



MPAC to 2040 - Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Local Plan

Council has prepared a draft plan for the future of Moonee Ponds Activity Centre (MPAC) and proposed planning controls to guide the use and development of MPAC. The Local Plan has been developed in line with MV2040 and outlines a vision for an activity centre that is beautiful, green, easy to move around, full of life, and celebrates the heritage character of the area.

It includes recommendations for how new developments and public spaces should look, better pedestrian and vehicle access, increases in canopy cover and open space, and where we can plan for more affordable housing.

The Local Plan identifies eight distinct precincts within the activity centre and we would love to know what you think. For more details, the Document Library contains the draft Local Plan, the suite of background documents, and the proposed planning controls.


Why do we need a plan for the activity centre?

The population for MPAC is forecast to triple to approximately 11,600 by 2040 and we need to be prepared. By making the most of existing infrastructure and focusing growth on key activity areas, we can create vibrant and healthy neighbourhoods for generations to come.


How can I get involved?

Once you have had a look at the key precinct recommendations linked below, take the survey to give your feedback.

We’ll also be set up at the Clocktower Centre (750 Mt Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds) so you can stop by and share your ideas:

  • Monday, 29 April, 10am – 1pm in the Balcony Tower Room
  • Wednesday, 1 May, 4pm – 7pm in the café (ground level)
