Ringwood East Activity Centre Structure Plan

The Ringwood East Activity Centre Structure Plan is an important planning document that provides guidance for the future development of the Activity Centre. The Structure Plan seeks to build on and enhance the important role of the commercial area as a central focal point for the community, where daily social interactions and a sense of place are supported. The Plan outlines exciting opportunities for improving public spaces through both expansion and improvements of the existing park spaces within the centre, looking at ways these green spaces can be better connected to the commercial strip.

Activity Centres facilitate the delivery of essential goods and services to residents, businesses and visitors alike. The existence of a comprehensive network of activity centres, that differ in size and function, is an important factor in the health of the municipality, particularly with regard to economic activity, employment and service provision.

A structure plan is a means to provide precinct-specific direction on the extent, form and location of land use and development. The preparation of structure plans for Maroondah’s Neighbourhood activity centres is designed to protect and enhance the role of the centres, help direct capital spending on public realm and infrastructure improvements, and protect residential areas from the encroachment of inappropriate commercial uses.
