MV2040: our long-term plan

Can you imagine what Moonee Valley will look like in 2040?

We’re developing our long-term plan, MV2040, to guide how we will make Moonee Valley a great place to live for current and future generations. This plan focuses on a network of 20 minute neighbourhoods to help ensure the Moonee Valley of 2040 is healthy, liveable and resilient.

The Visioning Paper is the next step in our plan for the future and is designed to inspire and stimulate conversation about the type of city and neighbourhoods we want to live in. The world is changing rapidly and, to enable us to keep pace, the ideas and concepts presented in the Visioning Paper are designed to be bold, inspirational and transformational.

Want to find out more and give feedback on your neighbourhood?

Read the MV2040 Visioning Paper and let us know what you think about the vision and big ideas for your neighbourhood.

We are seeking feedback until 22 December. You can do this via:

What is MV2040 all about?

MV2040 will be a long-term plan that looks to improve the liveability of our city and will be guided by five themes:

  • A fair city that values diversity, where everyone feels safe, is included, is healthy and has access to services and housing
  • A city that is thriving with access to jobs, lifelong learning, vibrant and dynamic activity centres
  • A connected city of accessible, active and sustainable transport choices
  • A green city that is ecologically healthy and environmentally responsible
  • A beautiful city that celebrates its identity, heritage and open spaces

A key focus of the long-term plan will be planning our 13 neighbourhoods, highlighting the unique needs of each individual neighbourhood. Over time, our neighbourhoods will evolve to support people to live even healthier and more connected lives in Moonee Valley now and into the future.

Next steps

All of the feedback received on the MV2040 Visioning Paper will help to develop the paper from a vision into a draft strategy, which we will be releasing for community feedback in early 2018.

Initial ideas gathering

The first phase of community engagement on MV2040 took place throughout February to April 2017. We spoke to the community at 29 neighbourhood sessions, and received feedback through our MV2040 online engagement platform.
