What is Amendment C184?

Amendment C184 proposes changes to the Glen Eira Planning Scheme to implement the land use and development components of the Bentleigh and Carnegie structure plans, through changes to local planning policy, zones, overlays and operational provisions. The proposed planning controls and policies are based on the vision and directions of the structure plans and will be used to assess future planning permit applications.

The Amendment aims to:

  • Manage and guide where new housing, retail and commercial space occurs and its design
  • Increase housing density in the right locations
  • Provide greater clarity regarding expected levels of growth and desired land use, development and built form outcomes
  • Ensure development responds to local context by implementing a transition of heights and scale of built form in different locations in each centre
  • Facilitate public space improvements
  • Protect heritage and character in accordance with the vision in both the Bentleigh and Carnegie structure plans
  • Provide more detailed planning controls for buildings, covering building heights, setbacks and design, to improve the quality of development.
  • Protect sunlight for key public spaces.

Why is the Amendment required?

Throughout 2017, Council worked with the community to develop structure plans for Bentleigh and Carnegie. The plans include direction on undertaking an amendment to the Glen Eira Planning Scheme to help deliver on land use and built form outcomes.
