Now is the time to have your say and ensure your interests in the area are maximised by influencing future development of the Monash Employment Cluster.

Broad planning for the Monash Employment Cluster has now formally commenced and the Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) is seeking input to guide the preparation of a Draft Framework Plan.

They have identified four key guiding principles and ‘ideas’ focused on employment, improvements to services and facilities, improving connections with other parts of Melbourne, and accessibility within the MEC.

Initial key features include:

  • Industrial and Employment precincts
  • Specialised Health, Education and Technology precincts
  • Business Town Centres
  • Future residential intensification
  • Improvements to public transport including level crossing removals at key locations

The Framework Plan will guide land use, development and infrastructure investment within the MEC area – see below.  Further information on the proposed Vision, draft Principles and Key Ideas can be obtained from the Shape Victoria website.
