Stage 2 consultation occurred from 18 July to 18 August 2022. A summary of the feedback is now available.
A UDF is a strategic planning tool that sets out a design vision for the future development of a place. It includes plans and guidance for the future development of an area which may be achieved through design requirements in the planning scheme and Council public works in the streets.
The Monash Housing Strategy (2014) identified the two main boulevards in the City of Monash (Dandenong Road and Springvale Road) as areas with future redevelopment potential - including housing change and diversification (taking into account physical constraints, prevailing neighbourhood character and heritage values).
Many of the residential areas fronting the boulevards, originally proposed to be rezoned to the General Residential Zone - Schedule 3, were removed from Amendment C125 Part 2. This acknowledged that further work is being progressed to implement the Monash Housing Strategy for these areas (and the Accessible Areas). These sites are retained, for now, in the General Residential Zone - Schedule 2 (GRZ2).
No. The UDF will not be recommending any changes to the zoning of industrial, commercial and technology precinct areas along the boulevards. However, it may recommend public realm improvements to these areas.
A nature strip is an area of public land between the property boundary and the kerb, excluding any public pavement. In most cases, a nature strip is grassed, but a nature strip can also be modified by an alternative landscape treatment.
More info is available on Council's website.
No, Council will not be acquiring any land.
There is currently very little policy to guide redevelopment along the boulevards. The Urban Design Framework has been developed as a policy and planning tool that will help guide development along the two boulevards.
The UDF does contain proposed improvements along the boulevards, however all of the proposed improvements are on land currently owned or managed by Council (or the Department of Transport).
