HOW CAN WE STOP IT IN GLEN EIRA?
- ATTEND the Planning Forum
The introduction of the new Planning Zones and other recent planning “reforms”, in both Glen Eira and across Melbourne, is starting to have a significant impact. As President of SOS and a Planning Consultant, Ian Wood, has been following the latest planning changes and how some Councils, including Glen Eira, have been implementing the new guidelines.
This is an opportunity to obtain information on the zones and how they impact current and future residents.
