Play the Game to Help ‘Plan Brimbank’
You’re invited to play a fun interactive game to tell us your priorities for land use and development in Brimbank.
- Play now at Plan Brimbank!
Work your way through a series of simple comparisons to tell us your preferences in relation to public spaces and the environment, transport, planning for housing and streets, and shopping precincts.
Your preferences will help create a final ranked list of priorities. We want to make sure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to tell us what is important to them.
The information gathered will inform the review of the Brimbank Planning Scheme which guides land use planning and development in Brimbank.
The game is available to play in English, Vietnamese, Cantonese, Greek, Maltese, Mandarin or Arabic.
The game will be live until Monday 14 May 2018.
Under the Planning and Environment Act 1987, all councils are required to review their planning scheme within one year of the adoption of a new Council Plan.
Sunvale Community Park Skate Park
The skate park section of the new Sunvale Community Park located at Hertford Road, Sunshine is completed and now open in time for the school holidays. Work is continuing on the Sunvale Community Park – which will include play spaces, a large shelter, BBQ facilities, Indigenous artwork, edible garden and more.
Sunvale Community Park is being developed under Council’s Creating Better Parks Policy and Plan. The investment by Council and the Victorian Government in Sunvale Community Park continues the positive impact that Creating Better Parks is having in Brimbank.

Hampshire Road Upgrade
We’re transforming the ‘heart’ of Sunshine into an attractive, well-planned space that's easy to negotiate. Work is currently underway along Hampshire Road between the Man lifting cow statue at the corner of Bennett Place and Service Street.
To complete work on new raised pedestrian crossings, this section of Hampshire Road will be temporarily closed, from Wednesday 4 April until Tuesday 24 April.
Please obey traffic signs and follow the detours in place. Pedestrian access through Hampshire Road remains open to allow easy access to local businesses, however a section of footpath has been fenced off for safety.
For more details visit Hampshire Rd Upgrade or call 9249 4000.
