Pakenham is going through a big transition, as it moves from a suburb on the fringe of Metropolitan Melbourne, to a destination for thousands of new residents and workers. As Pakenham becomes a destination, we need to be clear about the type of investment and development we want in Pakenham.

Now and in the coming years Council will continue to work with our community to ensure we are building vibrancy and prosperity and that we are proud of Pakenham.
