Making a move on the future of Box Hill

10 Jul 2019

Council is undertaking a project to review the vision and strategic directions for Box Hill and community members are encouraged to provide input.

Whitehorse Mayor Councillor Bill Bennett said Box Hill is a Metropolitan Activity Centre under current state government planning strategy Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 and is to be the focus of substantial development, growth and investment.

“The Box Hill Transit City Activity Centre Structure Plan was adopted by Council in 2007 and is the current guiding document for us, our stakeholders and the community,” Cr Bennett said.

“Since then, Box Hill has changed significantly which means it’s time to review and update the 2007 plan to position Box Hill as a great place to live, work and visit.”

Council has now released the Box Hill Metropolitan Activity Centre Analysis and Options Report for consultation. This Report provides a summary of the existing situation in Box Hill and also identifies opportunities for the future.
