Background Information

The Ringwood Metropolitan Activity Centre (MAC) is continuing to change and transition towards becoming a modern town centre rich with development opportunities that, if well managed, will be an exemplar activity hub for our local and sub-regional communities.

The vision for the Ringwood MAC Masterplan is that Ringwood is the major urban destination in Melbourne’s outer east. It will contain a vibrant city centre, with an active local economy offering contemporary lifestyle options set in a natural landscape and connected through an advanced road and rail network.

Following extensive consultation with key stakeholders and residents living within the activity centre, Council adopted the Ringwood MAC Masterplan in 2018. Since the adoption of this policy Council prepared changes to the Maroondah Planning Scheme to implement this policy and help guide this activity.

About the Amendment

Amendment C130maro ('the Amendment") implements the objectives and strategies of the Ringwood MAC Masterplan through the application of local policy, zones and overlays.

The Amendment applies to land within the Ringwood Metropolitan Activity Centre which includes land:

  • To the north, the Bypass from EastLink to Mt Dandenong Road.
  • To the east, Ringwood Lake and Bedford Park to Pitt Street.
  • To the south, Bedford Road, to Station Street then following the properties to the rear of Station Street through to Wantirna Road. The boundary then follows the train line to New Street, then along Molan Street to Heatherdale Road (Municipal boundary).
