Eltham Neighbourhood Character
Did you move to Nillumbik for its green spaces and treed environment?
Have you seen changes that are not for the better?
Do you want to ensure that what you value most about where you live is considered when the Council decides whether to approve a new development near your home? If so, it is extremely important that you tell the Council about the character of your neighbourhood.Read more
Presentation by Dr Greg Moore
At Eltham Community Action Group’s AGM on Sunday 29 May 2022, Dr Greg Moore gave a presentation on the importance of tree cover in urban areas, particularly in relation to climate change and planning laws.
Following requests from attendees, Greg has kindly shared the slides from his presentation with us.
Help a community driven project of renewal succeed
When the Fitzsimmons Lane roundabout was removed many thought the feeling of ‘coming’ home through to Eltham was gone forever.
But the people who objected to that work came up with a proposal to ‘renew’ publicly owned land to create a new entrance. Discussions were had with Major Roads Victoria, Council and Vicki Ward MP who conducted a survey of residents to see what people would like to form a new Gateway entrance into Eltham.
Municipal Planning Strategy
Council is reviewing another major planning document – the Municipal Planning Strategy (MPS).
A high level document, the Municipal Planning Strategy provides the overarching strategies for the major land use and development matters that affect the whole shire into the future.
“The vision, strategic directions and strategic framework plans provide the ‘big picture’ response to the opportunities and challenges facing a municipality.”
Council wants our input by 17th July through a short survey on Participate Nillumbik or by personal submission.
