Long term planning in Moonee Valley

When it comes to developing in Moonee Valley, there are important decisions to make on where, how many, and what kind of new residential and commercial developments we want to have here.

Our aim is to create a mix of land uses, quality architecture and design, and sustainable development that protects our environment.

Moonee Valley Planning Scheme

Long term planning in Moonee Valley involves the management of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme.

This includes the development of local planning policies that consider issues such as population growth, sustainability, environment and neighbourhood character. View the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme online at the Department of Planning and Community Development website.

Find out details about current amendments to the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme.

Activity Centre Structure Plans

We develop structure plans for activity centres. These plans guide the long-term development of particular areas.

These activity centres have been identified as suitable for increases in housing and commercial activity, through Melbourne 2030, the State Government’s plan for managing Melbourne’s growth. 

The State Government has now released Plan Melbourne, which is proposed to replace Melbourne 2030. Plan Melbourne does not change the designation of Moonee Valley’s activity centres.

We have a key role to play in identifying and protecting places of heritage significance. Find out more about Heritage.
