Brimbank council has vowed to continue transforming Sunshine into the capital of Melbourne’s west.
It has adopted the Sunshine Rising action plan to guide the suburb’s transformation during the next five years.
Mayor Lucinda Congreve said the plan was needed to help ensure once-in-a-generation projects, such as the Sunshine Super Hub, were used to their full potential.
“For our community, this will mean a dynamic multicultural town centre that takes advantage of some big opportunities that are around the corner, such as the … Sunshine Super Hub project,” she said.
“Having the Sunshine Super Hub here will transform Sunshine by making it a vital connection point and regional hub.
“We expect to see more jobs and more people coming through the centre, which will be great for the local community and a boost for our economy.
“Over time, Sunshine Town Centre will become the capital of Melbourne’s west for regional offices and services.”
Cr Congreve said the Sunshine Rising plan sets out a number of council-led initiatives for the suburb.
“We’ll make sure the Sunshine Town Centre becomes more vibrant and dynamic and we’ll continue to promote the fantastic attractions it offers our community and visitors far and wide.
“Our plan is to create better public spaces for our community and visitors to enjoy and we’ll support the centre to offer better retail opportunities for all.”
