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, vibrant and resilient.

The world is changing rapidly and, to enable us to keep pace, our plan for the future must be bold, inspirational and transformational.

The MV2040 Strategy will become our ‘umbrella’ strategy which will guide future work through action plans and not additional strategies.

Action plans will lay out how we will deliver on the directions we have set for our city through MV2040.

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:

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

Phase 3: Consulting on our draft MV2040 Strategy

Our draft MV2040 Strategy (pdf 42.1MB), accessible version (pdf, 800KB) was out for consultation from 26 April until 18 May 2018.

Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback! 

Phase 2: Consulting on our MV2040 Visioning Paper

We took all your ideas from phase 1 and developed an MV2040 Visioning Paper which outlined our key themes and big ideas for each neighbourhood.

View the MV2040 Visioning Paper:

Our official consultation period ran from 6 October to 22 December, 2017 and comprised of a range of engagement activities across Moonee Valley. This included the community symposium, an interactive online portal, social media posts, neighbourhood brochure mail-outs, feedback postcards as well as sessions with Council’s 10 Portfolio Advisory Committees.

In total there were:

  • Over 1,015 participants
  • Over 240 conversations
  • 2,179 ideas contributed
  • 53 written submissions
