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.
A 12 month extension to interim height controls in Bentleigh and Carnegie has been approved under delegation from Minister of Planning The Hon. Richard Wynne.
The height controls, which apply to Commercial and Mixed Use zoned land within Bentleigh and Carnegie Activity Centres, were due to expire on 31 December 2017. The new expiry date for the interim controls is 31 December 2018.
This extension allows Glen Eira City Council adequate time to carry out further detailed structure planning work in the New Year, which includes the investigation of changes to current planning controls into the Planning Scheme, which will positively influence the implementation of our draft structure plans for the Bentleigh, Carnegie and Elsternwick activity centres.
Council’s draft structure plans for Bentleigh, Carnegie and Elsternwick activity centres, which have been developed with the community, are scheduled to go to a Council Meeting for consideration on Tuesday 27 February 2018.
