Greensborough Activity Centre - Review of the Planning Controls

The Greensborough Local Structure plan was prepared in 2003 and was further developed into the current plan for Greensborough, The Greenbook: Greensborough Principal Activity Centre Plan, October 2006, which is available in five parts (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5).

This plan outlined a vision for the centre, and gave guidance on the way the centre should be used and developed in the future. It was reflected in the Banyule Planning Scheme in 2007 as part of Planning Scheme Amendment C51. It has since been translated into the controls in the Activity Centre Zone – Schedule 1 - Greensborough Activity Centre.

As time has passed it has become clear that the guidance from the structure plan need to be updated and made clearer for some locations, so that better land use and built form outcomes can be achieved and the centre can be revitalised. Council therefore recently commenced a review of the planning controls for the Greensborough Activity Centre in the following precincts:

  • Precinct 2: Henry Street East
  • Precinct 5: Southern Residential
  • Precinct 6: Flintoff Street

Figure 1 shows the location of the three precincts within the Activity Centre that are currently under review.

A review of the three precincts is complete and new land use and development guidelines have been developed - Urban and Landscape Design Guidelines for Greensborough Precincts 2, 5 and 6.

These guidelines will be translated into planning scheme controls that will be publicly exhibited in 2016, and the community will have the opportunity to give their input before any changes are finalised.
