Neighbourhood Plans

The City of Melville is proud to release the second edition of the Neighbourhood Plans – a collection of community thoughts, ideas and stories about your neighbourhood and its future.

The booklet describes what we – the City of Melville and the people who live, work, learn, play and invest here – have achieved together over the past four years. It includes stories from our diverse neighbourhoods and captures the way we have been working and how we intend to continue to work together, to achieve community wellbeing, for today and tomorrow.


People identify with their own neighbourhoods and localities the places where they live, receive services, and make social connections. Neighbourhood planning aims to develop partnerships between communities and government, built on co-operation and recognition of the creative ideas and skills that neighbourhoods have to offer.
