The first stage of community consultation has concluded. There will be an opportunity to give your feedback on the Discussion Paper in June.
Nillumbik Shire Council is reviewing the Structure Plans for the Diamond Creek and Eltham Activity Centres. Activity centres are the State Government’s preferred areas to concentrate a mix of uses and activities including retail, commercial and residential. They are also important community hubs where people can shop, work, play and live. Activity centres are guided by Structure Plans. Structure Plans give a vision, objectives and directions to support vibrant, prosperous, well-connected and sustainable centres, now and into the future.
The Eltham Structure Plan (2004) and Diamond Creek Structure Plan (2006) need to be updated to respond to the considerable social, economic and environmental change experience by Melbourne in the last 15 years.
Thank you to everyone who contributed their ideas and thoughts. A Community Engagement Report has been prepared by the consulting firm Chatterbox which summarises the feedback received from the engagement.
Council received an officer report at its Future Nillumbik Committee on 11 December 2018, which presented the findings of the engagement. The officer report and the Committee’s response are available in the agenda and minutes of the meeting on Council's website.
A discussion paper is currently being prepared and is anticipated to be available for comment in May next year.
