Activity Centre Framework, 

Activity Centre Framework

Echelon Planning prepared a new Activity Centre Framework for Moreland Council, which:

  • Confirms the activity centre hierarchy across Moreland;

  • Defines the number, location, role and boundaries of all Neighbourhood Activity Centres across Moreland;

  • Identifies the preferred locations and forms of medium and higher density housing;

  • Makes recommendations about implementing the Framework through the Moreland Planning Scheme (including the application of new residential & commercial zones).


Implementation of this Framework will mean that the vast majority of Moreland’s residents will also have local access (ie within 1km) to at least a neighbourhood-level activity centre (NAC) or that meets their weekly convenience retailing and community service needs.
