Notice of intention to block vehicular traffic on Selwyn Street, Elsternwick and to regulate traffic (One Way) on Gordon Street, Elsternwick for the purposes of assisting in the creation of the Elsternwick Cultural Precinct.

The Glen Eira City Council’s vision for the Elsternwick Cultural Precinct is to create a contemporary celebration of a Jewish quarter with a strong focus on youth and street life.

The key elements of the Elsternwick Cultural Precinct include the creation of a new civic space to establish a Jewish cultural precinct, a pedestrian plaza area connecting the community hub, museum and strategic sites, providing active cultural or community use frontages and limited retail presentation.

Consistent with the Council’s vision for the Elsternwick Cultural Precinct and the decision of the Council made on 27 November 2018, and otherwise in accordance with a decision of the Council made by the Chief Executive Officer of the Council pursuant to delegated authority on 19 December 2018, notice is given that at the Ordinary Meeting of the Council to be held on 30 April 2019 it is the intention of the Council acting under section 207, schedule 11, clauses 8(1)(b) and 9 of the Local Government Act 1989 (Act) to respectively:

  • regulate traffic on Gordon Street, Elsternwick by erecting works and structures over and on that part of Gordon Street as shown hatched green on the plan below (Plan) to allow one way traffic only over Gordon Street, between Glen Huntly Road and Sinclair Street; and
  • block vehicular traffic by placing and maintaining permanent barriers and other obstructions over and on that part of Selwyn Street, Elsternwick shown hatched blue on the Plan.
