Activity Centre, Housing and Local Economy Strategy

It is evident that Glen Eira is undergoing an exciting time of transition and we now have the opportunity to set a new direction for our municipality. Our City is recognised as a municipality with wonderful amenity, a diverse community with a considerably high number of well connected activity centres.

Glen Eira is forecast to grow by 22,000 people, 9,000 dwellings and 9,500 jobs over the next 15 years. The Activity Centre, Housing and Local Economy Strategy aims to set a new 15 year City vision for the future of Glen Eira.

This Strategy is intended to:

  • provide the strategic context to update Council’s Municipal Strategic Statement;
  • provide a planning policy link between Council’s new draft Glen Eira Council and Community Plan and the State’s Plan Melbourne objectives;
  • guide the strategic context for upcoming structure plans;
  • provide clear policy direction for all centres currently without an adopted structure plan;
  • provide a community-owned plan in achieving future State Government housing and job targets; and
  • provide high-level, place-based direction for upcoming strategies, including:
    • an Integrated Transport Strategy;
    • a Revised Open Space Strategy; and
    • the Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan.

We consulted on the draft Strategy between 24 May to 13 June 2017.

The Activity Centre, Housing and Local Economy Strategy was adopted by Council on 25 July 2017.

There are more opportunities to help shape the future of Glen Eira.
