Project context

Moreland City Council reviews its Transport Strategy each decade. 

Since the last look in 2010, there have been significant changes in Council and State Government policies affecting transport, as well as new transport trends and technologies such as wider use of Uber, Menulog and car sharing services. 

Because these changes have been so significant and our urban environment is evolving so quickly, we’ve decided to develop a new strategy ahead of time. 

Over the next few months we will be asking you a series of questions to get your view about Moreland’s transport future. 

That conversation will be partly shaped by your answers to our short survey, which is open until 12 pm, Friday 22 December.

What will the Strategy contain?

Council is responsible for local roads, parking, footpaths and shared paths for cyclists and pedestrians.

Council is not directly responsible for major roads such as Sydney Road, setting speed limits, or public transport services (including car parks at train stations), but is a powerful advocate on behalf of the Moreland community to the state government agency decision makers.

The new strategy will focus on what Council can do directly to improve transport in Moreland, such as new or improved routes for pedestrians and cyclists, and traffic management works that help reduce speeding or unnecessary through traffic on local roads. It will also identify the most effective ways for Council to work with other bodies that have responsibility for transport, such as VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria.

A Parking Strategy for the Coburg and Brunswick Activity Centres is being developed at the same time as the new Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy. This will determine whether the correct amount of car parking is being provided in these areas, including whether this supports a shift towards sustainable transport modes (walking, cycling and using public transport).

This strategy will do more than just aspire and advocate for change. Some very concrete and game changing initiatives could come from it depending on what you tell us. One of these could be the requirement for developers to help fund infrastructure that supports sustainable transport.

How do I have my say?

In 2028, how do you hope to be moving around Moreland?

You can have your say on this question by completing our short online survey.

Complete a short survey

You can also complete the survey at a Council library or customer service centre from Monday 4 December.

While we will use responses to the survey to help develop the strategy, you will not be identified in any way.

Please have your say by 12 pm on Friday 22 December 2017.

Activities in 2018

Council will run online and face-to-face community consultation in early 2018.

When future stages of the project are open in 2018, Council will promote these through this web page and social media, in local newspapers and through posters in its service centres and facilities.
