We've heard from many community members on a wish to see a focus on sustainability into the future for Glen Huntly. The draft Plan sets out some key strategies to ensure that Glen Huntly is growing sustainably. These include:
- Protecting the urban forest corridor along the rail line
- Increasing indigenous tree planting, on nature strips and in public open space
- Encouraging sustainable building design
- Encouraging water sensitive design
- Supporting urban greening in the private realm, including in new residential developments
- Incorporating and Environmentally Sustainable Design policy into the Glen Eira Planning Scheme.
