Moorabbin West Urban Design Framework

Council is seeking community input to help shape the future of a key area of Moorabbin. The Moorabbin west precinct on Nepean Highway (see image above) includes a mix of Council property and privately-owned sites including Moorabbin Bowl, Moorabbin Hebrew Congregation, NG Wishart Senior Citizens Centre and the Moorabbin Youth Club hall.

As the precinct is a key gateway into Kingston, and is identified as a future development opportunity within the Moorabbin Structure Plan 2011, Council is keen to create a plan for the precinct that allows for its coordinated renewal over time.


Urban Design Framework
Council is preparing an Urban Design Framework to guide any future redevelopment of the Moorabbin west precinct. It will provide a vision to guide the precinct’s future redevelopment and will include broad guidelines for the design of buildings, public spaces and new pedestrian connections.

It will focus on enhancing pedestrian and transport connectivity in and around Moorabbin, and examine consolidation opportunities across the entire precinct. The plan will detail concepts for key development opportunities, taking into account open space, landmark sites, heritage buildings, community requirements and the needs of existing landowners, adopting best practice design strategies to manage requirements such as car parking.

The design framework will closely align with the Moorabbin Structure Plan to contribute to the overall vision for Moorabbin, and will help to achieve Council objectives to deliver a broader community benefit through any future renewal of the precinct.

Current land owners, tenants and community groups are being consulted and these conversations will continue throughout the project. Council will also be seeking community input during the development of the Urban Design Framework to help inform the future of the Moorabbin west precinct.
