1. Thriving economy
Opportunities to create a robust and thriving economic future.
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to influence the future of one of Melbourne's most iconic shopping, business and residential hubs.
We invite your feedback on the draft Structure and Place Plan for Camberwell Junction in our survey on this page. This is our guide for transforming the area into a more vibrant, inspiring and community-focused place into the future.
Camberwell Junction is an important activity centre for Melbourne’s eastern suburbs – for shopping, employment, public transport, services and housing. Its popularity is growing and more residents in the future will call it home.
In 2021, Camberwell Junction was home to about 2,500 residents in 1,200 homes. According to Census data, in 2051 this will increase to 5,800 residents and we’ll need 1,500 more homes.
We need to demonstrate to the Victorian Government that we have a plan to meet housing and employment needs from now until 2051. Having this plan also ensures our community can have a say in decisions about this major activity centre.
The draft plan carefully considers the close relationship between private development and public land. It has two distinct, yet complementary parts:
1. The Structure Plan, which responds to current growth forecasts for the next 20+ years. It guides the design and scale of new development, while also protecting the character of the centre that locals love.
2. The Place Plan, which provides a vision and a pathway to improve liveability in Camberwell Junction. This includes identifying how we can improve public space, upgrade transport infrastructure and community facilities, expand greenery and raise safety for all.
Explore the draft plan in the Document library to learn more about the exciting major improvements that aim to deliver the community’s vision and priorities for the centre.
We've been building up to this consultation for some years now.
Our community first provided their input in late-2021. We heard what you love about Camberwell Junction and what you could reimagine for the centre's future. See our Engage Boroondara page on Stage 2: Imagine Place.
This, along with demographic and socio-economic analysis formed your vision and top priorities for the centre. See our Engage Boroondara page on Stage 3: Vision and priorities. We checked back with our community in late-2022 and heard that over 93% of respondents agreed with this vision.
We used these to draft our Structure and Place Plan, with specific strategies and actions that deliver on what's important to you.
