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.

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.
