Structure plan overview
The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA), Glen Eira City Council, Stonnington City Council, the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Trust (CRRT) and Department of Transport (DoT) have collaborated to initiate the development of the Structure Plan.
The Caulfield Station Precinct is located in Glen Eira, framed by Dandenong Road and a boundary with Stonnington City Council. The State Government’s metropolitan strategy, Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, identifies Caulfield Station and its surrounds as a Major Activity Centre and an Education Precinct.
Council’s City Plan 2020 aligns with Plan Melbourne and further identifies the precinct as a Major Activity Centre as well as an Education and Innovation Precinct with urban renewal opportunities, requiring a local plan to be prepared to set out how these characteristics can be supported and implemented.
Key destinations in the precinct attract workers, residents and visitors, including:
- Monash University's Caulfield campus
- Caulfield Racecourse
- Glen Eira College
- Derby Road retail outlets
- Park and recreational areas (Glen Huntly Park and East Caulfield Recreation Reserve)
There are also several existing residential areas ranging from lower to higher density.
Community engagement 2018 – vision and key directions
In mid-2018 we undertook community engagement to identify what people value most about the area, its key assets, what is missing and what would make it a great place.
Following this process, a summary was developed outlining key messages heard and setting key directions for the Caulfield Station Precinct.
Find out more by reading the Caulfield Station Precinct – Vision and Key Directions –Engagement Summary – August 2018.
Community engagement 2019 – 'Key Ideas'
In 2019, a ‘Key Ideas’ paper was prepared — envisioning how the precinct could develop into the future, drawing on community feedback from 2018 and a preliminary analysis of the area. Find out more by reading the Caulfield Station Precinct Key Ideas – October 2019.
In November 2019, the community gave us feedback on the 'Key Ideas' paper and shared their priorities for the future of the Caulfield Station Precinct. Find out more by reading the Caulfield Station Precinct Key Ideas (Engagement Summary) – March 2020.
