Have Your Say: Draft Pakenham Major Activity Centre Plan

Published: 25 October 2019

Cardinia Shire Council is inviting residents to have their say on the draft plans for Pakenham’s town centre.

The Pakenham Structure Plan and the Pakenham Major Activity Centre Urban Design Framework will provide a blueprint for the town’s future development. 
Cardinia Shire Mayor Councillor Graeme Moore encouraged all residents to contribute and provide feedback on the draft plans. 

“Council is inviting residents to help create a strong planning framework for Pakenham’s future. 

“We want to work together to create an inclusive, vibrant and sustainable town centre for generations to come,” Cr Moore said. 

The Pakenham Structure Plan will guide land use within the activity centre, while the Urban Design Framework underpins the design requirements for developments including heights and setbacks and decision guidelines for the activity centre.

  • Land use and development
  • Road, cycle and pedestrian connections
  • Housing options

  • The ‘Pakenham Place’ site
  • Building heights, setbacks and facades

Feedback can be provided online at
