Pedestrian Safe Neighbourhood Pilot

In early 2019, Council engaged with the community of Bentleigh East to hear views on what should be included in a new Pedestrian Safe Neighbourhood Plan in a study area bounded by Deakin Street, Mackie Road, Centre Road and East Boundary Road.

In early 2019, Council engaged with the community of Bentleigh East to hear views on what should be included in a new Pedestrian Safe Neighbourhood Plan in a study area bounded by Deakin Street, Mackie Road, Centre Road and East Boundary Road.

A draft Plan has now been developed, which aims to work towards an environment that encourages active and independent travel as well as protecting and enhancing neighbourhood amenity. We invite members of the community to view the draft Plan and offer their views.

The opportunity to have a say closed on 4 August 2019.
