Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Structure Plan

The Moonee Ponds Activity Centre Structure Plan (pdf, 16.27MB) was adopted in March 2010 and updated in June 2012. 

We then prepared an amendment to the planning scheme (Amendment C100) to incorporate the key strategies and requirements of the Structure Plan into the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme. Community consultation on the proposed amendment occurred in late 2011, and a number of submissions were received.

The submissions were referred to an independent panel for review.

The Panel Report was received and the amendment was adopted by Council in April 2012. The Minister for Planning approved Amendment C100 and it was gazetted on 30 March 2015. 

Moonee Ponds Activity Centre (MPAC) pilot program

In December 2016 the State Government announced that MPAC would be the site of a new pilot program aimed at improving the management of heights in activity centres and delivering public benefits to the community.

The pilot program will consider how planning controls can be improved to give greater certainty to the community and reflect the strategic planning we have undertaken for MPAC. 

At its meeting on 13 June 2017, Council confirmed its support for and participation in the pilot project and resolved to request the introduction of interim mandatory built form controls within MPAC for a period of 12 months while work is undertaken to establish new permanent built form controls for the activity centre.

This will include a review of building heights, and implementing a range of building form controls such as floor ratios, building setbacks and additional controls regarding overshadowing and wind effects. It will also include exploring the appropriateness of a mechanism to deliver public benefits in the activity centre.
