We are developing a new Economic Development and Tourism Plan that will guide our actions to help boost Boroondara’s local economy.

We want to make sure Boroondara remains a great place for our community to live, work, study and play. We also want to increase opportunities for businesses, workers, residents and visitors to enjoy all that Boroondara has to offer.

Our work so far

We completed consultations with our community to develop our draft Economic Development and Tourism Plan.

This included consulting with:

  • residents and community members
  • Boroondara traders’ associations
  • local businesses, including major industry sectors and home-based businesses
  • relevant Victorian Government departments
  • regional networks and partners
  • City of Boroondara departments.

You can read the draft Economic Development and Tourism Plan in the Document library on this page.

    We are committed to activating and enhancing activity centres and shopping precincts across Boroondara to support diversity of uses and meet the needs of residents, businesses, workers and visitors.

    We are committed to promoting business growth and investment in Boroondara that capitalises on existing industry specialisations and achieves successful economic and employment outcomes.

    An Environmentally Sustainable, Circular and ‘Smart’ Local Economy

    We are committed to encouraging a flourishing local economy that embraces innovative models of business and supplies environmentally sustainable goods and services to our community.

  • Priority 4

    We are committed to supporting the growth of the visitor economy by attracting residents from across Melbourne, as well as regional and interstate visitors and increasing visitor spend.

Community consultation

Thank you to everyone who had their say on our draft Economic Development and Tourism Plan. We are reviewing feedback from the community and will use this to develop our final plan.
