  • Sick of seeing over-development everywhere?
  • Sick of a council that does nothing to ameliorate the damage?
  • Sick of never being genuinely ‘consulted’ on anything – especially the zones?
  • Sick of the system (and council) favouring developers?
  • Sick of feeling helpless?

Well here’s your chance to have your say. The State Government is calling for submissions on the residential zones. Submissions close on the 14th March.

For the purposes of ‘discussion’, the appointed committee has released:

  • An overarching report (ie for all of Victoria)
  • A regional report (Glen Eira is to be found in the ‘southern region’)
  • A ‘list of recommendations’ on the zones

We urge all Glen Eira residents to take this opportunity. The links to the various reports are:

The Overarching Report – http://www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0005/291569/Residential-Zones-Overarching-Report.pdf

The Southern Region Report – http://www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/291392/Residential-Zones-State-of-Play-Southern-Subregion-Report-.pdf

The ‘Recommendations’ – http://www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/291568/List-of-Suggested-Improvements-to-the-Residential-Zones.pdf

Submissions can be mailed or uploaded to – http://www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/planning/panels-and-committees/current-panels-and-committees/managing-residential-development/managing-residential-development-submission-form

It’s worth pointing out that once more, unlike many other councils, (Moonee Valley, Stonnington, Monash, etc etc) Glen Eira has not tabled its submission, nor has it made it public up to this stage. Thus, no formal resolution by council, and no discussion in chamber, plus no opportunity for residents to ask questions or comment PRIOR to their submission going in. Well, what’s new?
