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.
Council sought feedback about development in the study area, through a community survey which was promoted via Bulletin no 1 (994.04kB). The Bulletin outlined the project and included a link to the online survey.
There was an excellent response to the survey, with almost 400 surveys completed. Thank you to those who participated. Download a copy of summary of the community feedback.
