East Village

Once an important industrial area, the East Village precinct has seen the departure of many large-scale manufacturing businesses in recent decades. There is now an opportunity to renew the precinct and allow East Village to become an environmentally sustainable and innovative mixed-use area with a focus on employment and education. Glen Eira City Council is working in partnership with the Victorian Planning Authority (State Government) and the community to form a future plan for the site.


So far this year we have undertaken three rounds of consultation. The feedback we received for round three clearly stated that the community required more detailed information in order to provide feedback. We have listened to this feedback and the VPA has engaged independent expert consultants to provide advice on a number of topics including urban design, parks and open space, traffic, employment and drainage.

These reports are still in draft form however we are taking this opportunity to check-in with the community and seek your views on this detail before the advice is finalised for submission to Council and the Minister for Planning.

Visit the VPA's website to view the draft reports (under draft technical studies tab at the bottom of the page).

If you would like to provide feedback, please post in the forum below or submit by email to CityFutures@gleneira.vic.gov.au.

If you would like more information about any of these reports, please come along to a community forum where the experts who have prepared the detailed information will answer your questions.

The forum will be held on:

Thursday 7 December, 6.30pm−8.30pm

Duncan Mackinnon Reserve Pavilion

Corner North and Murrumbeena Roads, Murrumbeena

We look forward to receiving your input, which will help shape this significant urban renewal site.

This round of community consultation will be open until Wednesday 20 December and we encourage you to provide feedback. For more information, please contact the City Futures Department on 9524 3421.
