Housing Strategy — Amendment C255

Amendment C255 proposes to implement the key directions of the Glen Eira Housing Strategy into the Glen Eira Planning Scheme. It guides different levels of housing growth and types to appropriate locations by introducing the future character and built form precincts via new and amended residential zone schedules and rezoning land. The amendment aims to improve Glen Eira’s housing diversity, landscaping and canopy tree cover, encourage quality building and design, enhance neighbourhood character and support sustainable land use. It will do this by strengthening local policy and planning controls.

Amendment C255 is right at the start of the amendment process. Officers are in the process of preparing and submitting the amendment documentation to the Department of Transport and Planning. If Council receives authorisation from the Minister for Planning, it will proceed to go on public exhibition later in 2024 where submissions can be made.
