East Village

Once an important industrial area, the East Village precinct has seen the departure of many large-scale manufacturing businesses in recent decades. There is now an opportunity to renew the precinct and allow East Village to become an environmentally sustainable and innovative mixed-use area with a focus on employment and education. Glen Eira City Council is working in partnership with the Victorian Planning Authority (State Government) and the community to form a future plan for the site.


Throughout 2018, Council worked closely with the East Village Community Reference Group and the Victorian Planning Authority to develop more detail to the community’s future vision.

In particular, a Structure Plan has been developed based on community feedback, which informs a suite of planning controls for the precinct. These important documents were approved by Council at a Special Council Meeting on Tuesday 23 October.

  • The Structure Plan can be downloaded here.
  • A summary of community feedback across all stages of the project, can be found here.

The Minister for Planning has granted authorisation to Council to exhibit a Planning Scheme Amendment to implement the planning controls into the Glen Eira Planning Scheme. You can have your say on the Amendment between Thursday 5 September and Wednesday 9 October via Council's website at www.gleneira.vic.gov.au/east-village
