Protection of Residential Neighbourhood Zones
- Murray Thompson
- Legislative Assembly of Victoria
This petition of Sandringham, Cheltenham, Beaumaris, Black Rock, Highett Hampton, Mentone and wider Melbourne note with alarm Labor’s plans to increase the density of development in residential zones. Currently Bayside has the highest level of residential amenity protection in Metropolitan Melbourne under the Neighbourhood Residential Zones implemented in 2014 which limits development to not more than 2 dwellings of not more than 2 storeys per block. The Mentone Activity Centre also formerly had a mandatory height limit of 4 storeys to better protect amenity which was subsequently lifted by the present government.
The petitioners therefore respectfully request that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria calls upon the Victorian Government to maintain the residential neighbourhood zones in Bayside and reinstate mandatory height limits in Mentone to better protect the amenity, vegetation, open spaces and leafy family streets of Bayside and Kingston.
