Whitehorse City Council

Residential Corridor Built Form Study

Whitehorse City Council has engaged planning consultants Ethos Urban to undertake the Residential Corridors Built Form Study. This study looks to determine built form guidelines for those areas in the municipality along key road corridors where land in the Residential Growth Zone (RGZ) interfaces with land in the Neighbourhood Residential Zone (NRZ) and the General Residential Zone (GRZ).

Where is the project area?

This study focuses primarily on the major east-west tram and road corridors, where there is an interface between the RGZ and GRZ or NRZ to the rear or side.  Specifically, this project is looking at Burwood Highway, generally between Elgar Road, Burwood and Hanover Road, Vermont South and Whitehorse Road in Mont Albert, Laburnum and Nunawading.

How long will this project take to complete?

It is anticipated that the project will be completed by the end of June 2018.

How can I have my say?

A short survey can be undertaken here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/52GDPWG

The survey includes three questions and is estimated to take between 5-10 minutes to complete.

The survey seeks to understand what is important to you about your local area and your thoughts about what creates good development along major road corridors.

How long do I have to complete the survey?

The survey closes at midnight on Sunday 22 April 2018.

Why should I provide my input?

By completing the survey, you will have an opportunity to have your say about what is important to you in your local area.

If you don’t want to complete the survey, but you still want to stay involved in the project, you can complete your details on the survey site or contact Council on 9262 6303 to be added to a mailing list for project information.

Can I tell my friends or family about this project?

This survey is open to anyone living and working in the area or interested in the project. Please feel free to share this information to other people who you think may be interested in this project.

What happens next?

The survey responses will be collated and analysed to assist the team with the project.

The project team will then prepare draft guidelines, which will be available for community comment in June 2018.
