Elsternwick Structure Plan 2022

Elsternwick is a diverse and growing area, with a vibrant shopping strip, accessible public transport and desirable residential streets.

We have developed the draft Elsternwick Structure Plan, to help guide growth in suitable areas and ensure any growth contributes to our high-quality streets, public open spaces, heritage character and amenity.

The draft outlines a shared vision for the area’s future and is a culmination of technical analysis and design work and builds on previous stages of consultation.

Key elements

The plan includes a range of elements, such as:

  • development and future land use
  • transport and parking
  • types and heights of buildings
  • employment
  • open spaces
  • infrastructure
  • heritage and character.

Local and State Governments can use structure plans to make decisions about developments, investments and infrastructure improvements. They can also inform community members and developers about what change is expected and allowed in certain areas.

Community consultation

Between November 2016 and December 2017, we did six stages of consultation with the Elsternwick community which has helped inform the development of the draft Elsternwick Structure Plan 2022.
