Current consultations

Stage four: Quality design principles 26 July to 3 September 2017

Council is seeking feedback on its Quality Design Principles which introduce design principles and preferred building types for Glen Eira. The Principles respond to community concerns about development in Glen Eira, as well as achieving the community’s aspirations for reinvigorated activity centres.

Community feedback on this document will inform Council’s Quality Design Guidelines.

The Quality Design Guidelines will build on the Quality Design Principles to provide direction for future residential, commercial, mixed use and urban renewal development for the whole of Glen Eira. This will include further information on setbacks, heights and building design. Further feedback will be sought on the guidelines before seeking adoption by Council.

View the draft Quality Design Principles and tell us what you think.

Stage five: Draft concept plans 26 July to 3 September.

We are seeking feedback on its draft concept Plan for the Bentleigh Activity Centre.

The Concept Plan will inform a draft Structure Plan which we will consult on in stage 6. A structure plan is a long-term plan that guides important aspects of an activity centre including development, land use, transport and car parking approaches, community facilities, public realm and open spaces and strategic opportunities. Structure plans provide certainty for the way an area will accommodate growth and change as supported by Council and the community.

View the draft concept plans and tell us what you think below.

Integrated Transport Strategy: 19 July to 20 August

Glen Eira should be a City that is easy to move around with a range of safe travel options and walkable neighbourhoods. In order to achieve this we are developing an Integrated Transport Strategy we are seeking your input to gain insight into the community’s transport goals, constraints and solutions. The Integrated Transport Strategy will inform transport, planning and movement plans in the final Bentleigh structure plan.
