Draft Structure Plan

Council sought community feedback on a draft Structure Plan for the Mount Waverley Activity Centre. The plan sets out a long term vision for the future growth and improvement of the centre.

The purpose of the structure plan is to preserve and enhance the local amenity, the village feel of the centre and garden city character (all of which are highly valued by the community) - but to also allow the centre to grow and prosper.

A number of improvements to the activity centre are proposed in the draft Structure Plan including:

  • A central pedestrian spine - A north-south pedestrian link connecting retail, car parking, public plazas and community facilities to the train station
  • New public plazas - A proposed streetscape and public realm upgrade near the train station and an expansion of the plaza near Winbourne Road.
  • Community centre precinct - Future improvements to the spaces and connections between the library and community centre buildings.
  • Central car park improvements - Simplification of this highly utilised car park to improve its efficiency, and to make it safer and easier for pedestrians.
  • Stephensons Road improvements - Opportunities to enhance the ‘front door’ of the activity centre.
