Some of our services have different times over the holidays, including household bin collections previously scheduled for Christmas and New Year's Day. See all affected services.

Nominations for the 2018 Boroondara Urban Design Awards are now open. We are searching for high-quality urban design that complements Boroondara’s neighbourhood character and heritage and enhances its public realm.

Anyone can nominate, including architect, builder, property owner or community member.

We are looking for new developments, completed within the last two years, which sensitively respond to their settings and improve the public realm.

There are five awards categories and all entries will be judged by a panel comprising three Councillors and two independent urban design specialists.

All nominations must be submitted by 21 May 2018, and award winners will be announced at a presentation ceremony on 25 June 2018.
