Following Council’s adoption of Structure Plans for the Elsternwick, Carnegie and Bentleigh Activity Centres, the Minister is set to gazette the interim built form controls this coming Thursday 16 August 2018.

So far the interim height controls for each centre have been revealed, although many of the finer details of the controls (e.g. setback requirements) are not yet known.


Schedule 10 to the Design and Development Overlay (DDO) will relate to the Elsternwick Activity Centre. 

Height controls range from the lowest order of scale being the Heritage Character (residential) precinct limited to 9m, comprising up to 2 storeys, to the highest order of scale with the permissible maximum height of 43m, comprising up to 12 storeys for the Urban Renewal precinct.

For Elsternwick, the interim height limits approved by the Minister align with Council’s proposal, however are identified as discretionary not mandatory. The setback controls are also to be made discretionary.
The DDO10 for Elsternwick will expire on 30 June 2020.
