We collect 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:

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

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

Renewal of schemes

Each scheme is renewed every 5 years.

The current five year special rate and charge schemes in place for Camberwell Junction and Burwood Village are due to expire on 30 June 2021.

Council resolved on 15 March 2021 to commence the statutory process and give public notice for the declaration of the proposed renewal of both schemes.

More information about the proposed schemes, including the public notice and the process for making submissions and objections are available at:
