Community Facilities Plan

The purpose of the Moonee Valley Community Facilities Plan 2011 (pdf, 1MB) is to ensure a network of facilities across Moonee Valley for people to meet and participate in the life of their communities and neighbourhoods.

The Community Facilities Plan looks at a range of Council-owned facilities for the community, including libraries, early years, arts, youth, sports pavilions, leisure centres, multi-purpose facilities and public toilets.

It establishes broad directions to help guide our future planning and provision of community facilities.

The Draft MV2040 Action Plan builds on the Community Facilities Plan, 2011. Once adopted, the Draft MV2040 Action Plan – Community Facilities will supersede the Community Facilities Plan, 2011.

Draft MV2040 Action Plan – Community Facilities

Community facilities are vital assets for service delivery, social interaction and enlivening neighbourhoods.

Wider community facility planning trends focus on clustering of community infrastructure in activity hubs which cover services and functions for sport, recreation and leisure, social interaction, childhood development, and artistic and cultural expression. These hubs can be large and contain facilities (Council and non-Council) which serve a municipal/sub-municipal or neighbourhood catchment. Community hubs support increased accessibility, service coordination and facility utilisation, and reinforce 20-minute neighbourhoods.

Our target is for all residents to report being satisfied or very satisfied with the number and the conditions of the community facilities and services in their neighbourhood.

The draft plan outlines our policy position and key projects for the planning, provision and management of community facilities to 2040.
