Mooroolbark Activity Centre

The Mooroolbark Structure Plan(PDF, 9MB)  was adopted in 2011 soon after adoption of the 2009 Housing Strategy, which identified Mooroolbark as a centre where medium and higher density residential development were encouraged in order to improve housing diversity due to its location near a railway station and commercial centre with excellent access to services, parks and community facilities, employment opportunities, and schools.

The Structure Plan outlines the vision for Mooroolbark to develop and change in consideration of these opportunities.

Since adoption of the Structure Plan in 2011, the centre has been significantly changed by the level crossing removal, creation of a new train station, and a multi-level car parking structure.

At the 13 December 2022 Council Meeting, Council approved an update to the actions of the structure plan to reflect implementation work that has been completed, and to also address the changed circumstances of the centre. A status update was also given on the actions that have not yet been completed.
