The following is an email sent to us from William Pierce from Urbis Planning, who are now representing the developers in the C143, 88-100 McKinnon Road development. Email starts below.
Please see attached and below (as requested by the Panel) setback diagrams and high level traffic analysis which considers both the GRZ2 and the abandoned MUZ/DDO.
This information illustrates the maximum development potential of the site considering the various requirements with respect to height, setbacks and, in the case of the GRZ2, 35% garden area. The reality however is that the development potential of the site will likely be less than the estimates contained in this analysis considering that it is unlikely that future development will occur in a single stage. Furthermore, there are other planning requirements with respect to internal amenity and off site amenity (shadowing etc.) that may also reduce development potential beyond that shown in this high level analysis.
With respect to the GRZ2 which has been endorsed by the City of Glen Eira, we note the following based on the attached analysis:
- Height - 10.5 metre maximum building height (3 storeys).
- Setbacks - Garden area requirements will likely warrant up to 7 metre setbacks to rear boundary for landscaping and open space however this could be as little as 4 metres to the ground level and 5.5 metres at first floor. Front setbacks are 3 metres to allow for some private open space and landscaping.
- Yield estimates - Based on a conventional apartment format of development up to 85 dwellings is achievable generating a requirement for 130 car parking spaces.
- Traffic analysis - Adopting a conservative trip generation rate of 0.5 movements per dwelling (in consultation with engineers at the City of Glen Eira), it is estimated that there will be up to 43 vehicle movements.
Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions whatsoever.
GRZ2 Zone proposal
Take a look at the proposed car parking and the number of proposed three-bedroom apartments. Below are proposals for MUZ, which will be on the table at the Planning Panel. The development is surrounded by mostly single storey dwellings.

We refer to our emails dated 19th March (prior to the Council meeting on 21st March) in which we requested that you “vote to abandon this amendment in its entirety and request that residents be consulted on the proposed re-zoning BEFORE any new amendment for this location is submitted to the Minister for exhibition”.
Having attended the Council meeting on 21st March, we were very disappointed that with the exception of Cr. Athanasopoulos the entire Council voted instead to abandon proposed MUZ & DDO, replace it with a GRZ2 and refer the matter to an Independent Planning Panel. We, and we believe all other objectors left the Council meeting on the evening of 21st with the clear understanding that MUZ & DDO were off the table for this amendment (and indeed the letter received from Jacqui Brasher dated 4thApril seemed to confirm this understanding, despite the fact that there was a disparity between Planning Panel's letter i.e. MUZ and her letter)
We have now been advised that the Planning Panel is in fact considering MUZ as this is the exhibited Amendment, as well as GRZ2. – and that at the Panel Directions hearing when the planning panel asked Jacqui Brasher why Council had not chosen to formally abandon C143 and restart the amendment process for the change to GRZ2 - her response was Council supported what was exhibited – which is MUZ!)
Can you please advise if you aware that this is the case, and if so can you please explain to us why this has happened – and more to the point why were objectors advised that the Council resolution "abandons" the Mixed Use Zone and Design and Development Overlay when in fact Council had merely changed its position and added GRZ to the Panel's review.

Save mckinnon village
We are concerned residents who live on McKinnon Road, near McKinnon Village. This website was set up to object to the C143 ammendment to 88-100 McKinnon Road, McKinnon. If this, and the DDO overlay for four storeys goes ahead, it will be a catastrophe.
