Your View : Housing Strategy Proposed Directions

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A Housing Strategy is to be prepared to guide housing growth and associated infrastructure activity in the next decade. It would guide policies to provide for a range and diversity of housing in appropriate locations to accommodate a growing and changing population . There is still scope to widen our already diverse housing types for both young and old, lone and large households.

We invited your views on the proposed directions for a Housing Strategy for the City of Holdfast Bay, seeking your feedback on the directions for future housing growth. In the initial engagement we sought views on the types and locations for additional medium density housing, the maintenance of character areas and retention of some areas of larger allotment housing for those wanting space for families and other domestic activities.

Initial feedback has been used to prepare a draft strategy that will be provided for further wider engagement.

The initial 21 day engagement period began on Tuesday 31 October and closed at 5pm on 20 November 2017. Feedback is being considered in conjunction with the evolving development of the new Planning and Design Code and State Government Planning Reform.

    I would like to propose that Council consider zoning the northern side of Jetty Rd, Brighton, so that it can be used for commercial premises to complement and in line with those operating on the southern side of Jetty Rd. The current situation is very congested and restricting for businesses and customers alike. Bonnie Claassen

    Whilst not directly about the proposed housing directions, your proposal would be relevant to any future considerations of activity centres and associated needs of growing communities.

    Before providing comments on the Strategy I would like to find out if the properties on the western side of Fortrose Street at Glenelg East are included in the proposed Urban Corridor boundary or in the proposed Character and Low Density Housing boundary or in neither. It doesn't appear to be clear from the maps provided.

    At this stage, there are no set boundaries for these zones and this is why we are engaging with the community. While medium density zoning is predominantly residential in use, we are testing whether there is support to change this to urban corridor zoning which would encourage ground floor commercial use. Whatever zoning is eventually settled, the scale and size of any resulting development would need to be respectful of adjacent land uses…. We welcome comments on the proposed broader directions in addition to those about your specific neighbourhood.
