Why is Council doing this?
Council is preparing an Integrated Transport Strategy to plan for the expected growth, emerging uses and multiple travel modes in Box Hill’s future. Council will use this Strategy to facilitate change, we’ll make changes that we can directly control and work with the agencies and owners to bring about the change needed.
Without this planning and change, Box Hill is unlikely to remain sustainable, safe and accessible to all. Nor will it remain a distinctive and vibrant, or a place where community chooses to live, work and enjoy.
