What is the Brunswick Activity Centre?

Activity centres are vibrant community hubs where people shop, work, meet, relax and often live.

The Brunswick Activity Centre is shown on the map below. The activity centre has 4 main areas – the commercial areas (marked on the map in pink), the industrial areas (marked on the map in brown), the surrounding residential areas, as well as parks and other public spaces.

What are we trying to achieve?

Council wants to encourage business investment and jobs in the Brunswick Activity Centre because:

  • More people are choosing to live in Brunswick, but job growth is not keeping up
  • Unless we increase business investment and attract more jobs, the vibrancy of the Brunswick Activity Centre will decline
  • Even more of us will need to travel outside Brunswick for work

Working locally provides benefits for us and our community:

  • Less commuting time & cost
  • Extra hours with family & friends
  • More time for exercise & sleep
  • Supporting local business economy
  • Workers spending locally can establish a cycle of growth.

How do we ensure the Brunswick Activity Centre is a vibrant area to live, work and play?
