Council welcomes extension of interim height controls
A 12 month extension to interim height controls in Bentleigh and Carnegie was approved on 21 December 2017 under delegation from Minister of Planning The Hon. Richard Wynne.
The height controls, which apply to Commercial and Mixed Use zoned land within Bentleigh and Carnegie Activity Centres, were due to expire on 31 December 2017. The new expiry date for the interim controls is 31 December 2018.
This extension allows Glen Eira City Council adequate time to carry out further detailed structure planning work which includes the investigation of changes to current planning controls into the Planning Scheme. This will positively influence the implementation of our Structure Plans for the Bentleigh, Carnegie and Elsternwick activity centres.
Following the adoption of Structure Plans for Bentleigh, Carnegie and Elsternwick in February 2018, Council requested more detailed interim controls from the Minister for Planning. These reflected the approved Structure Plans. It is expected that a decision from the Minister would be made in the near future.
