Caulfield South Neighbourhood Activity Centre - Draft Built Form Framework

We're developing a draft built form framework for the Caulfield South Neighbourhood Activity Centre area.

The framework will establish recommendations to manage building heights and setbacks in the area set out below.

It will analyse the existing buildings and take into account their size and position, the topography of the land, how buildings are used and their relationship with other buildings. It will also identify the special elements that the community values such as public spaces and historic buildings. This analysis establishes the context for the recommendations.

Why are we developing a draft framework?

The Framework is a first step in working towards new planning controls for the centre. Implemented into the Glen Eira Planning Scheme, planning controls will provide specific guidance and direction for new buildings, helping to:

  • provide clarity to landowners, businesses and the community about the acceptable height and setbacks of future buildings;
  • identify and retain the local sense of identity in these centres;
  • strengthen the vitality and economic viability of the centres; and
  • ensure these Centres continue to be enjoyable places to shop, work and gather.

What is happening at the moment? An assessment of the existing built form character and pedestrian amenity of the centre is currently underway to inform the framework.

What's next? In the coming weeks, following the drafting of the framework, there will be an opportunity for the community to provide input.

You will be able to do so on this page, through an information session/Q&A, or via a phone or video chat with us.
