Background

At its meeting in October 2015, Council decided to refer community submissions to an independent planning panel.

The submissions were received after Council sought community views on proposed Amendment C120 to the Monash Planning Scheme, which seeks to incorporate the Glen Waverley Structure Plan into the Planning Scheme.

At its October meeting, Council made several changes to the Amendment in response to community feedback. These changes were:

  • Reduce the maximum building heights proposed for Built Form Area I (east side of Springvale Road, between High Street Road and Hogan Road) from four-six storeys to three-four storeys with a maximum height of 13.5 metres
  • Reduce the maximum building heights proposed for Built Form Area J (the Mountain View Hotel site) from four-eight storeys to three-four storeys with a maximum height of 13.5 metres.

      To read the report considered by Council prior to its decisions, see Amendment C120 to the Monash Planning Scheme: Implementation of the Glen Waverley Activity Centre Structure Plan (PDF, 588KB)

      Here are the Amendments to that report: 4.1 Attachment 1 (PDF, 385KB), 4.1 Attachment 2 (PDF, 100KB) and 4.1 Attachment 3 (PDF, 600KB).

      • Deletes Schedule 2 to Clause 43.04 (Development Plan Overlay) as the development required by the schedule, has been constructed.
