It begins with clear boundaries and good data.
- I would love to see “Welcome” and “See you again soon” signs at the major entrances to our neighbourhoods.
- It is important to accurately document both the changes in the population and built environment. This should include data going back to before the mandatory height limits were introduced in 2013.
- Good data will assist with an evidence-base for advocacy to the State Government about the “share” of developments for Glen Eira.
Consideration is given to the natural landscape, including mature trees.
Ideally, caring for our place enables gentler transitions between established buildings and new builds.
- Whilst Council may have an idea for what a certain area should accommodate, the established, neighbouring buildings are used as starting points to decide which building height is appropriate, up to a set maximum.
