Activity centres in Manningham are likely to experience pressure for change and increased development as the State Government implements its metropolitan strategic plan: Plan Melbourne.

A structure plan is a planning tool that applies to an activity centre and surrounding area and sets out a vision for how the given area should develop over time.  It also includes a set of actions to achieve this vision.
