Neighbourhood Character

The City of Monash Urban Character Study 1997 identified five residential character types within the Municipality which generally relate to their period in which they were constructed.

These are:

  • Area A: Around the Hughesdale - Oakleigh area, pre First World War and inter-war development on 'grid' subdivision.
  • Area B: Oakleigh - Clayton area, 1945-1965 development.
  • Area C: Mount Waverley - Glen Waverley area, 1945-1965 development.
  • Area D: Jordanville - Chadstone area, public housing of the 1950's-1960's.
  • Area E: post 1965, Glen Waverley - Wheelers Hill area, characterised by underground cabling, undulating topography and large allotments.
