We are now working with the Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) to develop a structure plan for the Caulfield Station Precinct and Glen Huntly activity centres.
Several key activities attract workers, residents and visitors to the area. This includes Monash University’s Caulfield campus, Caulfield Racecourse, Glen Eira College, retail opportunities within Derby Road and Glenhuntly Road, as well as parks and recreational areas (Booran Reserve, Glen Huntly Park, East Caulfield Recreation Reserve).
Structure planning will help to connect both activity centres over time in a way that leverages combined opportunities and supports local business and innovation, education, recreation, transport interchange, place-making and housing opportunities.
In 2018, the Victorian Government committed to provide funding for level crossing removals at Neerim Road and Glenhuntly Road in Glen Huntly. The projects have been scheduled to occur before 2025. Based on value capture associated with level crossing removal elsewhere, the potential value capture in this location makes it worthwhile for us to undertake structure planning for Glen Huntly now and prepare for future changes with our community in advance.
Next steps for Glen Huntly
In October and November 2019, the community were engaged to provide feedback to inform the next stage (Stage 2) of developing a draft structure plan for Glen Huntly.
This second stage in the process of developing a draft structure plan built on past engagement and ideas shared with us on what people value most about Glen Huntly. Eight key directions for Glen Huntly were developed from these ideas.
In stage two we sought your feedback on these key directions, as well as design ideas for the two Glen Huntly level crossing removals.
A draft Structure Plan for Glen Huntly has now been developed. You can find out more by visiting the project page.
Consultation for Caulfield Station Precinct
At the same time, the Victorian Planning Authority invited community feedback on key ideas for the Caulfield Station Precinct in 2019. Find out more about those ideas by visiting Victorian Planning Authority website.
Input for both consultations closed on 26 November and results are now being collated. Thank you to everyone who participated.
