The Merri-bek Community Infrastructure Plan (CIP) guides Council’s planning and delivery of community infrastructure.

The Community Infrastructure Plan responds to increasing demand for community infrastructure in Merri-bek because of our growing and changing population.

The Community Infrastructure Plan can also help Council secure external funding or project partners.

The plan was developed in part through the Imagine Merri-bek program. You can read a report about that engagement in the document library of this webpage.

What is community infrastructure?

Community infrastructure (or community facilities) are public buildings and spaces that house community services. When facilities co-locate in a building or precinct, it is known as a ‘community hub’.

It is not only Council that supplies community infrastructure. Other levels of government, the private and not-for-profit sectors supply diverse types of community infrastructure such as gyms, medical centres, church halls and child care centres.
