Elsternwick Structure Plan

The Elsternwick Structure Plan sets out our long-term vision for central Elsternwick.

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
  • how to preserve and protect neighbourhood 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.

For a full overview, download the Elsternwick Structure Plan (PDF, 48MB).

To inform the development of the plan, we completed six stages of community consultation. For more information on how we included you, visit our Elsternwick community consultation page.

Current status

We adopted the Elsternwick Structure Plan at our Council Meeting on 27 February 2018, following more than 12 months of planning. We couldn't have achieved it without your input.

We are now undertaking a municipal-wide housing strategy. We will revise the Structure Plan once that is adopted.
