Malvern Valley streetscape improvements

We plan to upgrade the Malvern Valley shopping strip in Chadstone Road, Malvern East. The Victorian Government is contributing funds to the project.

The new streetscape will create a social space where the community can meet, dine and shop.

In its current form, the walkway in front of the shops is narrow with little space for outdoor dining. The paving is irregular and the street furniture is old and dated. There is limited greenery and the area is dominated by a car park.

Under our proposed plan, the area will be transformed into a people-friendly space. There will be more room for outdoor dining, updated street furniture and more greenery throughout.

Scope of works

The draft design for the Malvern Valley Activity Centre includes:

  • high quality paving throughout the precinct
  • wider footpaths for more outdoor dining and better pedestrian access
  • new seating, bike racks and bins
  • upgraded drainage
  • new plantings and retaining all existing trees
  • changes to traffic direction to improve safety

Note: the wider footpaths will require removal of four parking bays.


Consultation on the draft concept for design was completed in December 2020.

The final concept design has been developed and construction will begin in June 2021.
