Activity Centres Strategy


The Hobsons Bay Activity Centres Strategy 2019 provides an over-arching framework to inform planning, economic development and decision-making about activity centres in Hobsons Bay, as well as to attract and direct public and private investment.

It outlines a vision for Hobsons Bay activity centres, and sets out 11 directions, supported by strategies, and place-based policies and actions, to make this vision happen as population grows.

The Strategy was adopted by Council in August 2019 following a comprehensive community and stakeholder engagement process conducted in 2018. This process was valuable for Council to understand the community's views on this strategy. To read more about the background and context of how the Strategy was developed, click here(PDF, 991KB)
