Transforming Murrumbeena together

Murrumbeena is changing, with new developments, level crossing removals and station works.

With the state government’s level crossing works now underway in Murrumbeena, Council wants to support our community through this period and help make the most of the opportunity to create a better shopping centre long-term.

This page will keep you up to date with the changes happening in Murrumbeena and let you join in the conversation to help shape the future of your shopping strip.

Current consultations

Strengthening Murrumbeena’s Village Feel

Council has developed two potential designs for Murrumbeena, following community consultation around a range of 'transformation concepts' from March to April 2017.

These designs consider feedback we have received on parking, access, traffic in local streets and other community concerns. Both of the designs aim to deliver the community's vision for Murrumbeena (refer to Council’s Activity Centre, Housing and Local Economy Strategy for more information).

We think both designs are great, but would like to hear how we can make them even better. Both designs include more of what the community wants, and seek to address key concerns, however, the designs are different — each achieves more of some things and less of others — there just isn’t the space to fit lots of everything into the one area.

View the two designs and tell us what you think below.
Design one

Design two

To help you fully understand the designs and how they might affect you, we held a Q and A session on Wednesday 23 August with a panel of independent experts. You can view the session here.

You can also read the independent expert reports on traffic, economics and urban design in the documents section.

Following this final round of consultation, Council will consider the community vision, community opinion and advice from external and internal experts to make a final decision.

Consultation closes on Sunday 3 September.

Integrated Transport Strategy: 19 July to 20 August

Glen Eira should be a City that is easy to move around with a range of safe travel options and walkable neighbourhoods. In order to achieve this we are developing an Integrated Transport Strategy we are seeking your input to gain insight into the community’s transport goals, constraints and solutions.

Help us plan for future transport needs


Stage four: Quality design principles 26 July to 3 September 2017

Council is seeking feedback on its Quality Design Principles which introduce design principles and preferred building types for Glen Eira. The Principles respond to community concerns about development in Glen Eira, as well as achieving the community’s aspirations for reinvigorated activity centres.
