Draft Glen Eira Housing Strategy

This consultation is now closed and feedback gathered will be reviewed and inform development of the final Strategy. Please refer to this page for updates and information and progress.


How will we provide for the housing needs of an evolving community while continuing to support the sustainability, attractiveness and liveability of our city?

Our population is growing and changing. To meet the varied housing needs of our current and future residents, the City of Glen Eira will need more housing, and a greater variety of housing types.

To help forecast and manage these future housing needs, we have developed a draft Housing Strategy for the City of Glen Eira.


What is a housing strategy?

It is a document that uses population forecasts to identify who will live here in the future and what housing they will need. It examines the capacity of residential land to accommodate future housing and looks at the neighbourhood character to determine what level of change can be accommodated. Then it lays out a framework to identify locations for different types of housing growth and provide a basis on which to decide future planning zones.


How has it been prepared?

Council undertook research to lay the foundations of the strategy by reviewing current planning policies, assessing demographics, examining current land capacity, considering existing neighbourhood character based on geographic areas in Glen Eira, and engaging with the community about housing issues and opportunities.


Have your say on the draft strategy

The engagement period has been extended and will now close on Sunday 15 May.

There are a variety of ways you can find out more, ask questions and have your say before the engagement period ends.

Please review the draft documents and complete the survey in the tabs below.
