On the Australia Day public holiday on Monday 28 January, some of our services and centres may be closed or have different hours. Please see details of all affected services.

Our role as Council is to set and deliver on the planning strategies that guide how land in Boroondara is used and developed.

Our strategies cover four main areas:

  1. Housing and residential: our Neighbourhood Character Study guides development and our Housing Strategy manages the provision of housing and protection of our valued neighbourhood character.
  2. Shopping and commercial: our Shopping and commercial areas strategies often focus on specific parts of the municipality.
  3. Open space and environment: our Open Space Strategy provides opportunities in the natural environment for relaxation and fitness, while protecting biodiversity.
  4. Heritage: we work to identify and protect the heritage of places across Boroondara for current and future generations.

For information on the zones that apply across the municipality, which have a set of requirements stating what land in each zone may be used for, visit the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
