MV2040 - STRATEGY AT A GLANCE

The MV2040 Strategy is Council’s long-term plan for improving the health, vibrancy and resilience of our city over the next two decades. It has been prepared to shape the type of city and neighbourhoods we want to live in.

The world is changing rapidly and, to enable us to keep pace, the ideas and concepts presented in MV2040 are designed to be bold, inspirational and transformational. MV2040 and the Council Plan form an integrated approach to planning, delivery, monitoring and reporting. The Council Plan supports the vision and overarching strategic framework of MV2040 by outlining what Council will do in the four year term to achieve a healthy city.

VISION STATEMENT
MOONEE VALLEY - ‘A HEALTHY CITY’

In 2040 Moonee Valley is a great place to live, work and visit, strengthened by a network of 20-minute neighbourhoods. Our neighbourhoods allow all people, at all stages of life, to live locally, accessing most of their needs close to their home.

Our neighbourhoods are beautiful, sustainable and hold strong community connections which enable citizens and the environment to be healthy and resilient.

Plan Melbourne 2017-2050 focuses on improving Melbourne’s health and liveability through the creation of 20-minute neighbourhoods.

They must:

be safe, accessible and well connected for pedestrians and cyclists

offer high-quality public realm and open space

provide services and destinations that support living locally

facilitate access to quality public transport that connects people to jobs and higher-order services

deliver housing/population at densities that make local services and transport viable

facilitate thriving local economies

Based on State Government directions, our city has been mapped into 13 20-minute neighbourhoods. These neighbourhoods are defined by the ability to reach day to day needs and services such as shops, open spaces, schools, community facilities, public transport and some jobs within a 20-minute walk.

Each of our 13 neighbourhoods has a distinctive character and identity, with individual challenges and opportunities for improving liveability. We know that a one size fits all solution does not work, and the benefit of neighbourhood planning is that we can identify local priorities and tailor responses to improve the health and vibrancy of all parts of our city. It means prioritising health and wellbeing outcomes through our planning, and delivering services and infrastructure necessary to foster community pride and connection.
