Whitehorse City Council, together with consultants Ethos Urban, has prepared draft Built Form Guidelines for land in the Residential Growth Zone along key road corridors in the municipality.
The study establishes built form controls to better guide development outcomes. The controls relate to building setbacks, architecture and height, building separation, overshadowing, landscaping and pedestrian and vehicle access.
The Draft Guidelines can be viewed here:
The Study Area (183.92kB) 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.
Council sought feedback about development in the study area, through a community survey which was promoted via Bulletin #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.
