East Village Strategic Site

East Village

Located 14km from Melbourne’s CBD, East Village is a 24 hectare site on the corner of East Boundary and North Roads, Bentleigh East. It is currently used for industrial and commercial uses.

The Victorian Planning Authority (VPA) is working in partnership with Glen Eira City Council  to develop a plan that will facilitate the redevelopment of East Village for mixed-use development over the long term.

East Village is an integral part of Glen Eira’s Activity Centre Strategy, which outlines a vision and objectives for all major and neighbourhood activity centres within the municipality.

The vision & concept plan

“East Village will be a sustainable mixed-use precinct with a focus on innovative employment and education opportunities. Enhanced by green open spaces and places for people, it will be supported by a diverse range of high-quality housing and retail that caters for all.”

Glen Eira Council workshopped the vision above with the community as part of it’s stage 1 community engagement. To read the outcomes of this engagement, please click here.

From this vision, the VPA and Glen Eira Council have developed a concept plan, which will later inform a draft structure plan.
