Due to record rainfall, we're behind in our mowing schedule. We're unable to use our mowers while the ground is saturated and the long grass takes longer to mow. Our crews are working hard to catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Building a better Boronia

We are building a better Boronia by 2040.

About

We are bringing growth to Boronia whilst preserving and protecting residential and community areas.

Revitalising Boronia is part of the Victorian Government's Suburban Revitalisation program.

Boronia Renewal Strategy 

The Boronia Renewal Strategy provides a framework for growth in Boronia over the next 20 years, focusing on:

  • economic development and investment
  • land use
  • building and development 
  • transport 
  • public spaces
  • community wellbeing
  • infrastructure.

View the Boronia Renewal Strategy

Previously, Council adopted the Boronia Structure Plan in 2006 and updated in March 2012. This plan has been replaced by the Boronia Renewal Strategy 2019 (revised 2021).

Projects

There are a number of projects underway, including:

Beautifying Boronia

3 large-scale murals will be commissioned on sites in Boronia.

We will work with property owners to confirm the sites.

These murals will benefit local residents, traders, and visitors of Boronia by:

  • preventing graffiti
  • increasing the community's perception of safety.

This project is funded by the Victorian Government's Suburban Revitalisation program and will be completed in early 2022.

Knox residents enjoyed family-friendly movies under the stars across 3 weekends in March and April 2022.

Big Flix is an all ages, family friendly, smoke and drug free event. Entry is free.

Local traders were given an opportunity to be involved by offering takeaway food and local suppliers will be sought for event management, production, infrastructure and amenity supply.

This project was funded by the Victorian Government's Suburban Revitalisation program and was completed in in April 2022.

Erica Avenue streetscape renewal

Erica Avenue is located between Boronia Junction and Boronia Village, in the heart of Boronia.

It is an important link for public transport users and local businesses in the area.

With the assistance of the Victorian Government, we are planning to revitalise Erica Avenue with:

The streetscape works will:

Green spine corridor concept design

A key priority in the Boronia Renewal Strategy is the development of a Green Spine Corridor along Genista Avenue, Chandler Road and part of Tormore Reserve.

This project will see the development of concept designs for the Green Spine Corridor.

A Green Spine Corridor will deliver active transport connections and sustainable travel infastructure in Boronia. 

This project is funded by the Victorian Government's Suburban Revitalisation program and is expected to be completed in early 2022.

Lupton Way shared zone and public art lighting

A new shared zone will be created in Lupton Way to:

  • prioritise pedestrian movement
  • improve connectivity.

Public art that acts as lighting will also be installed.

  • create more green space
  • provide connectivity between shopping precincts, public transport and shared pathways.
My Generation program

My Generation is a program that will bring together younger and older community members in Boronia to address ageism and discrimination through a range of intergenerational activities.

Acitivities will be co-designed by stakeholders and may include:

Replacement of Major Road streetlights

478 energy inefficient lights will be upgraded to LED lights on major roads in Boronia.

This will:

  • address local concerns of poor amenity
  • address perceptions of safety after dark.

This project is funded by the Victorian Government's Suburban Revitalisation program and is expected to be completed by mid 2022.

Wayfinding and Branding strategy

A Wayfinding and Branding strategy will be developed to address issues with movement and connectivity in the Boronia Activity Centre.

We want to encourage walking and cycling in the Boronia Activity Centre by displaying travel times and distances between key services and destinations.

We hope this will improve connections and support active transit.
