Stage four: Quality design principles 26 July to 3 September 2017

Council is seeking feedback on its Quality Design Principles which introduce design principles and preferred building types for Glen Eira. The Principles respond to community concerns about development in Glen Eira, as well as achieving the community’s aspirations for reinvigorated activity centres.

Community feedback on this document will inform Council’s Quality Design Guidelines.

The Quality Design Guidelines will build on the Quality Design Principles to provide direction for future residential, commercial, mixed use and urban renewal development for the whole of Glen Eira. This will include further information on setbacks, heights and building design. Further feedback will be sought on the guidelines before seeking adoption by Council.
