What is happening?

Community Consultation has now closed. Council is currently reviewing all feedback to assist preparation of the Draft FMAC Structure Plan which will be going out for community consultation later this year. A copy of the Emerging Ideas consultation findings will be added to this page shortly.

Council is preparing a new Structure Plan for the Frankston Metropolitan Activity Centre.

This long term 20-year plan will guide how Council invests money in the city centre, the types of development encouraged as well as infrastructure and public space such as parks, bike paths and pedestrian access.

To kick off this conversation with the community, we’ve developed an Emerging Ideas Paper and we would love your feedback.

What are our Emerging Ideas?

The Emerging Ideas Paper outlines our preliminary thoughts and ideas for how the city centre could be planned into the future. We have summarised these below under our 4 'themes' and 13 'key direction' headings.

The ideas have been informed by:

  • Technical analysis undertaken by the project team.
  • Initial community and stakeholder consultation.
  • Council feedback.
  • Site visits.

Now it is time for our community to have your say on the below ideas - click on each theme to learn more.
