1. Proposed vision for Macaulay

We are proposing to consolidate and simplify the six theme based visions from the 2012 structure plan into a single vision for Macaulay.

The vision:

"Macaulay will transition into a mixed use, mid-rise neighbourhood with a distinct inner urban character. New development will be high quality and deliver amenity for residents, workers and visitors.

Improvements to public transport services, walking and cycling will be prioritised to support sustainable modes of travel.

Greening of streets, enhancing the Moonee Ponds Creek and the delivery of new open spaces will provide connections and a network of local places.

Public and private investment will deliver community infrastructure to meet the needs of a growing and diverse neighbourhood.

Macaulay will adopt innovative solutions to climate change adaptation and mitigation."
