What is Sunshine Rising?
Sunshine Rising is our town centre management and revitalisation program. We want Sunshine Town Centre to become one of Melbourne’s great destinations, and capital of Melbourne’s West.
Go to Sunshine Town Centre - Open for Business to find out more about investment and how we can help.
Who does the program involve?
This program uses a ‘whole of Council’ approach to make our vision for the centre happen. It builds on a strong collaboration between us and key external stakeholders including:
- business and service operators;
- property owners;
- other levels of government;
- civic and community service providers; and
- transport and infrastructure agencies.
Sunshine Rising is based on the centre management model often used by freestanding shopping centres. But we know that the Sunshine Town Centre--with more than 230 property owners and 450 businesses and services--is more complicated, (shopping centres are typically in single ownership).
Sunshine Rising deals with these complexities by placing strong emphasis on stakeholder communication, engagement, and partnerships.
The Sunshine Partnership Group oversees the program. The group has members from the public and private sector from the Sunshine Town Centre. This group's advice helps us improve the centre’s economic vitality and community life.
