Transforming Caulfield Station Precinct Together

Last year Council asked what you love about your shopping strip and your vision for the Caulfield Station Precinct into the future. This consultation was conducted in all activity centres in Glen Eira and helped to inform the development of an Activity Centre, Housing and Local Economy Strategy and Quality Design Guidelines for Glen Eira. Details of those consultations can be found in the document library.

Council will now work with the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) to develop a structure plan for the precinct.

Caulfield Station Precinct Structure Plan

The Victorian Planning Authority is leading the preparation of a structure plan for the Caulfield Station Precinct, in close collaboration with Glen Eira City Council, Stonnington City Council, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and Transport for Victoria (TfV).

The Caulfield Station Precinct is located within the Glen Eira local government area, with Dandenong Road forming the municipal boundary with Stonnington. Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, the city’s metropolitan strategy identifies the station and its surrounds as an Education Precinct focused around Caulfield Station.

Several key activities attract workers, residents and visitors to the area including Monash University’s Caulfield campus, Caulfield Racecourse, Glen Eira College, retail opportunities within Derby Road as well as parks and recreational areas (Glen Huntly Park and East Caulfield Recreation Reserve). There are also several residential precincts which range from lower to higher densities.

Community and stakeholder engagement (May/June 2018)

The VPA, Glen Eira City Council and DELWP are inviting community members and stakeholders to share their vision and thoughts about the future of this precinct.

This phase of engagement will produce a Vision and Key Directions report that will summarise community and stakeholder input and inform the next phase of the structure planning process. This report will be published on the VPA website.

The purpose of this community engagement process is help identify what people value most about the area and what would make this a great place for everyone both now and into the future.

To view Frequently Asked Questions regarding this project, click here.

In this first phase, you can provide your ideas and input in the following ways:

  • An online survey (until Friday 29 June 2018) – please click HERE to complete.
  • A community visioning workshop – see key dates information.

The opportunity to provide feedback will close on Friday 29 June.

    2017 is shaping up to be a big year for strategic land use planning in the City of Glen Eira.

    In 2016, Glen Eira City Council undertook extensive consultation with the community to review its Planning Scheme. The Planning Scheme was adopted in August and sets a strategic vision for the municipality.

    Glen Eira City Council Mayor Cr Mary Delahunty said this year, we want to work closely with the community to guide and shape the development of the priorities identified, including guiding building development; addressing car parking needs; providing more inviting places for...

    2017 is shaping up to be a big year for strategic land use planning in the City of Glen Eira.

    In 2016, Glen Eira City Council undertook extensive consultation with the community to review its Planning Scheme. The Planning Scheme was adopted in August and sets a strategic vision for the municipality.

    Glen Eira City Council Mayor Cr Mary Delahunty said this year, we want to work closely with the community to guide and shape the development of the priorities identified, including guiding building development; addressing car parking needs; providing more inviting places for people; and planning for our future transport requirements.

    "We have already launched a Tell us what you love about your shopping strip campaign, which has been generating dynamic conversation. This feedback will be used to develop a community-owned vision for each of the shopping centres and shopping strips across Glen Eira," Cr Delahunty said.

    If you would like to have your say, visit www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/yourshops

    In March we will be seeking input on our early ideas to address future needs in our centres that are experiencing significant change, including Bentleigh, Elsternwick, Carnegie, Murrumbeena and Hughesdale. We encourage you to attend one of our drop-in sessions and provide us with feedback on key centre shaping project ideas, including:

    • constructing new multi-level carparks in Carnegie, Bentleigh and Elsternwick;
    • exploring a new community hub/library in Elsternwick;
    • revamping the plaza in Bentleigh;
    • more green space in Carnegie;
    • strengthening the village feel in Murrumbeena; and
    • better connecting Hughesdale to Boyd Park.

    For a list of times, dates and locations, visit www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/yourshops

    Council is also developing building and development guidelines for the commercial areas within Glen Eira, with a detailed focus on Bentleigh, Carnegie and Elsternwick. We will be looking for community views on these new proposed guidelines in the middle of the year.

    "Your feedback throughout each of the above stages is invaluable and will help form our plans for the future of Bentleigh, Carnegie and Elsternwick," Cr Delahunty said. "The draft plans will be presented for your final thoughts in October.

    "There will be plenty of chances to get involved throughout the year, and we encourage the whole Glen Eira community to take advantage of the opportunity to have a say."

    Carnegie residents are leading the way, with 224 survey responses, followed by Murrumbeena, with 112 people completing the five minute, online survey. Next is Elsternwick (95), Bentleigh (73), McKinnon (68), and Patterson (66). More than 800 people have also posted comments on Facebook.

    The survey responses will help shape Council’s vision and planning for 17 local shopping strips across Glen Eira.

    Glen Eira Mayor Cr Mary Delahunty said Council was pleased with the response to date, and encouraged those who haven’t taken the survey to do so, at www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/yourshops

    "I’m pleased that people are passionate about their local shopping strips," Cr Delahunty said.

    "We are receiving detailed feedback about what people like and dislike about the centres, including strong support for local cafes and businesses."

    Early survey results show that walking is the most popular method of accessing the shopping strips, followed by driving, riding and using public transport.

    More than 70 per cent of people said they use their shopping strip for daily needs, with 74 per cent frequenting cafes. Thirty five per cent of respondents use retail outlets, 36 per cent meet friends at their shopping strip and 20 per cent enjoy the libraries. Weekly shopping was undertaken by 34 per cent of respondents.

    As part of the survey, people are indicating the types of retail outlets they want to see, and sharing their views on levels of development, parking, green space and what makes their shopping strip unique.

    "To date, almost 90 per cent of people taking the survey are aged 26 years or older," Cr Delahunty said. "We also want to hear from younger people in Glen Eira, and would love more people aged 25 and under to take part.

    "Council is listening. This is your chance to tell us what makes your strip unique, what can be improved and what you’d like your shops to be like in 30 years’ time.

    "Please visit www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/yourshops to take the five minute survey before it closes on 19 February."

    The strips are Bentleigh, Carnegie, Elsternwick, Caulfield, Moorabbin, Glenhuntly, Alma Village, Bentleigh East, Caulfield Park, Caulfield South, Gardenvale, Hughesdale, McKinnon, Murrumbeena, Ormond, Patterson and Ripponlea. Tell us your thoughts, visit www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/yourshops
