Amendment C207moon - MPAC to 2040: Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Local Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The MPAC to 2040: Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Local Plan outlines a vision for an activity centre that is easy to move around, the environment is resilient, the place is full of life, and the valued heritage character is protected.

We have reviewed the activity centre comprehensively and made recommendations for how new development should function, how community facilities should be delivered, how pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle access and movement can be improved, what public spaces should look like (including how to make them more environmentally sustainable) and how we can facilitate the delivery of affordable housing outcomes.

Amendment C207moon proposes to implement the Local Plan and associated background documents to ensure the Planning Scheme aligns with our vision for MPAC. This includes a suite of mandatory and discretionary planning controls to provide greater clarity regarding development outcomes in the activity centre.

Thank you to everyone who provided a submission. All submissions were referred to an independent planning panel.

All submissions received during public exhibition (with personal informational redacted) are displayed displayed online (document library) in line with Section 205(1) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987.
