The Vision for Box Hill

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 ( PDF 5.57MB) was originally adopted by Council at its meeting on 18 June 2007. The Structure Plan was finalised after review of community feedback received during display of the Draft Plan during November/December 2006.

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 project to review the vision is well underway. At a Council meeting on 27 May 2019 ( PDF 2.49MB), Council resolved to release the Box Hill Metropolitan Activity Centre Analysis and Options Report for consultation with the community. 

The feedback period closed on Friday 2 August 2019.

Thank you for all of your feedback. It is now being considered by Council.
