East Village is on the south-east corner of the North Road and East Boundary Road intersection. The 24-hectare area of land includes the Virginia Park Business Centre, the former Bosch Brakes factory and some smaller industrial and commercial properties.
With many businesses leaving East Village in recent decades, there's a chance to transform it into an environmentally sustainable space focusing on employment and education.
What has happened so far?
In 2018 we worked with the East Village Community Reference Group and the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) to develop a vision for the precinct. We developed a structure plan based on your feedback, which includes planning controls for the precinct.
We approved these documents at a Special Council Meeting on 23 October 2018. We're now seeking the Planning Minister's authorisation to exhibit a Planning Scheme Amendment for the new controls. If approved, we'll exhibit the amendment in early 2019.
