Council collects funds that are wholly allocated to an incorporated Business/Trader Association representing the shopping centre, for the purposes of promoting and marketing the centre.

These funds are issued to the business associations twice yearly, based on a comprehensive agreement outlining governance and reporting requirements.

Eight special rate or charge schemes are in place for shopping centres in Boroondara:

Each scheme is renewed every 5 years.

Implementing and administering a special rate and charge scheme requires a significant commitment from Council and the business or trader association.

We encourage associations to contact Council to discuss a special rate or charge scheme for their shopping centre.

For more information, email Economic Development or contact the team on 9278 4382.
