Vision for Mentone

The City of Kingston has prepared a Structure Plan for the Mentone Major Activity Centre in order to provide an integrated response to the change envisaged for this centre over the next twenty years. The vision for Mentone Activity Centre is 'to enhance the beauty of Mentone by celebrating its past whilst capitalising on the role it now plays as a significant centre of activity'.

Why create a Structure Plan for Mentone?

The development of the Structure Plan follows on from work undertaken by Council through the P.L.A.N project. This earlier project identified the broad parameters for growth in key Activity Centres and has provided a platform for the manner in which future development is managed through the individual structure plans.

A structure plan is a long term guide for change to land use, building and public spaces in an activity centre. A structure plan creates a framework detailing how the centre is planned to develop and the actions needed to realise that framework. A structure plan will usually require an amendment to the Council Planning Scheme as one of its implementation mechanisms.

The Highett Structure Plan is a joint project between Bayside and Kingston City Councils and is a blueprint for future development in the area. The Plan examines a number of key elements that will create positive and forward-thinking changes to Highett and surrounding suburbs during the next 20 to 30 years.

The Plan will provide for significant improvements in key areas including shopping experiences, community services, and traffic management as well as protecting the suburb against ad-hoc and inappropriate development.

Council adopted the Highett Structure Plan in May 2006.

Council and the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) have developed a Masterplan for the area surrounding the Mordialloc Creek. 

Adoption of the Mordialloc Creek Masterplan

The Mordialloc Creek Masterplan was adopted by Council on 26 March 2012. Council made a number of changes to the Draft Masterplan after over 180 community submissions were received on the proposed initiatives. In March 2012 the final Masterplan was released, however a revision was made in September 2012 to fully reflect the Council Resolution.

What will the Mordialloc Creek Masterplan do?

The Mordialloc Creek Masterplan outlines the vision for the Mordialloc Creek area over the next 20-30 years and identifies future projects to achieve this vision. The Masterplan specifically focuses on the land surrounding the creek including Peter Scullin Reserve, Hazel Pearce Reserve, Pompei’s Landing, Attenborough Park, George Woods Reserve and Lambert’s Island. It does not include the actual creek itself, or the dredging (which is a separate initiative). 

How has the draft Masterplan been developed?

Development commenced in 2009 following a $250k grant from DSE. Council engaged a landscape-based consultancy Taylor Cullity Lethlean (TCL) to prepare a Draft Masterplan to create an integrated open space network and provide clarity on the different roles of each of the precincts.

A ‘Draft Concept Design Report’ was made available for consultation in April/May 2010. Based on community feedback, two of the original ideas, the Creek Link (new bridge near the creek mouth) and Intersection Improvement (signalising Beach Road and Main Street intersection) have been removed from the draft Masterplan. The remaining ideas have been further refined and developed into a draft Masterplan document.

The Draft Masterplan was available for community consultation in October/November 2011. Based on community feedback, Council adopted the Masterplan with a number of changes. These cover inclusion of the 4th Mordialloc Sea Scouts and the Mordialloc Life Saving Club; removal of the proposed new bridge to Lambert’s Island and proposed public access, as well as introducing palm trees along the Beach Road frontage of Hazel Pierce Reserve.

The potential of Moorabbin Junction is largely unrealised. Council is working toward reviving the centre to achieve the agreed vision “to actively engage to bring Moorabbin to life by complementing its strong cultural role with a living population that calls it home”.

Realising that vision will be helped by major new developments that bring Moorabbin to the centre of focus. Already just 16 kilometres from Melbourne, it will soon be even easier to get to and from Moorabbin, with the Dingley Bypass set for completion in two years and $100 million of upgrades planned for the Frankston rail line. The Structure Plan also identifies opportunities for Moorabbin Junction itself that will inject new life into the undeveloped centre, ease traffic, create more jobs, open new retail spaces and put more housing closer to transport.

Educational Resource Pack for schools

The City of Kingston has created the Two Acre Art Mural – An Educational Resource which is available for schools in the local area.

Read more about the artwork below, or download the Resource Kit here(PDF, 9MB)

 


The Artwork

The artwork comprises a large section of abstract shapes and patterns that almost merge into trails of colour when seen from train windows. But view the image close up and you will develop an appreciation of the incredible and detailed images that reflect Cheltenham’s history. 

From the bush and parkland and the local Indigenous culture, through to early shopfronts and buildings and iconic local residents. This mural aims to tell a story, spark the imagination and awaken the senses.

The unique use of styles and techniques show how street art can create vibrancy and warmth to enhance an area. This fabulous artwork has been designed so that it can be appreciated by all the community.

Council is working closely with VicTrack to strengthen the Moorabbin station precinct as the 'heart' of Moorabbin Junction.

Following the adoption of the Moorabbin Activity Centre Structure Plan in 2011, Council approached VicTrack to investigate recommendations made to strategically redevelop the station precinct.

The centrepiece of the Structure Plan is an ambitious use of railway line airspace to create a unique development of contemporary multi-level buildings mixed with open spaces that link the arts and retail areas. Known as the “AxiSpace”, the development will include substantial living, employment, shopping and regional entertainment opportunities, as well as additional public car parking.

An implementation plan developed for Council and VicTrack makes a series of short and medium term objectives that are needed to help make the AxiSpace viable and breathe new life into Moorabbin. Recommendations included:

Short term

  • Bus Interchange Upgrade 
  • Creating a pedestrian-friendly Station Street by converting the street to one way, building a footpath on the west side of the street, installing new street furniture, lighting and trees

    Medium term

    • Establish a new lifestyle precinct through temporary pop up retail stores next to the station car park
    • Revisit the business case to make improvements to the Station Street concourse buildin

    Long term

    • Explore the delivery of the ultimate AxiSpace development in accordance with the Moorabbin Activity Centre Structure Plan
