Council is currently undertaking a project to review the vision for the future of Box Hill.
Box Hill is designated as a Metropolitan Activity Centre (MAC) under current state policy Plan Melbourne and is to be the focus of substantial development, growth and investment. The Box Hill Transit City Activity Centre Structure Plan (the Structure Plan) is the current guiding document for Council, stakeholders and the community. The Structure Plan needs to be updated to coordinate development and enhancement of the centre into the future.
The Structure Plan was originally adopted by Council in 2007. Since the Structure Plan was developed, significant land use, growth and demographic change has occurred in Box Hill which means it is time to review and update the Structure Plan to ensure it remains current and relevant.

The Victorian Government has reclassified Box Hill as a Central Activities District under Melbourne 2030: A Planning Update – Melbourne @ 5 Million. As a Central Activities District, Box Hill will be the focus of a substantial proportion of future employment growth and public investment. Places like Box Hill are expected to provide:
Melbourne @ 5 Million and its predecessor Melbourne 2030 set out the government’s long-term vision and objectives for activity centres.
Box Hill is of significance in terms of the range of existing uses, access to public transport and its potential for major development, and is expected to be a focus for major change. In this context, Council has prepared a Structure Plan for Box Hill which will guide future development, improvement and investment. The State Government provided funding towards preparation of the Structure Plan.
