The planning figures for October 2013 have recently been released by the Dept of Planning. Glen Eira continues to streak the field of surrounding councils with 166 additional dwellings approved in just one month. In contrast, here’s what’s happening in other councils –

Bayside – 7

Kingston – 57

Stonnington – 44

Port Phillip – 29

Some more recent highlights include:

  • 8 storey application for Gordon Street, Elsternwick
  • 4 storey, 24 dwellings, Neerim Road, Carnegie
  • 5 Storey, Morton Avenue, Carnegie
  • 4 storey, 18 dwellings, Orrong Crescent, North Caulfield
  • 3 storey, 12 dwellings, Cromwell Street, North Caulfield

With no development contributions levy, with an appalling open space levy rate that will take eons to alter, developers are no doubt, rubbing their hands with glee, and sending wonderful Xmas cards to Newton, Akehurst and the planning department!

Here’s the report. Please note that parking waivers are not cited in this set of data. We are sure that this key element would also be going through the roof in Glen Eira!
