Public exhibition of Planning Scheme Amendment C247 — Bentleigh East NAC closed on Monday 23 October 2023 and Council considered all submissions received at the Council Meeting on 28 November 2023.

Council resolved to refer all submissions to an independent planning panel.


Council adopted the Bentleigh East Neighbourhood Activity Centre Built Form Framework (BFF) in November 2021. This framework serves as the foundation for preparing statutory planning controls that aim to manage the future growth and development of the centre, while still maintaining the character of Bentleigh East. The Design and Development Overlay (DDO) is the new permanent planning control proposed to implement the BFF.

A planning scheme amendment is required to introduce these planning controls into the Glen Eira Planning Scheme. We have prepared Amendment C247 for this purpose.

Land affected by Amendment C247glen

The DDO puts in place specific design controls for the commercial areas of the Bentleigh East Neighbourhood Activity Centre (NAC) including maximum preferred building heights, upper-level setbacks and other development requirements.

For more information about the Bentleigh East NAC, the proposed DDO or the history of this project, please refer to the Information Sheet.
