Yesterday the Ombudsman tabled a report in Parliament — Investigation into three councils’ outsourcing of parking fine internal reviews. The report makes three recommendations for reform to the State Government and two recommendations for the three councils subject to the review — including Glen Eira City Council.
The creation of a gourmet food market is just one of the exciting projects outlined in the newly adopted Structure Plan for Carnegie.
The Structure Plan sets a long-term vision for development and future land use, transport and parking, types and heights of buildings, employment, open spaces, infrastructure, and the preservation and protection of neighbourhood character.
Glen Eira Mayor Cr Tony Athanasopoulos said the new market hub will be located on the Council-owned Shepparson Avenue car park and will secure a range of high quality businesses that cater for the community’s current and future needs, while complementing the existing retail offer.
"Council-run markets have always been highly valued by local communities by also serving a social and civic need," he said.
"Located just south of the Carnegie Library and Community Centre, the new market will be an opportunity to create a civic precinct which is joined together by several small public spaces and will create a new active laneway running north to the station precinct.
"The market and library, along with their small public plazas, will become the new heart of Carnegie."
Other projects outlined in the Carnegie Structure Plan include:
- a new park on Kokaribb Road;
- improving pedestrian connections; and
- improving the retail streetscape.
