About Amendment C385boro

We are proposing changes to planning controls affecting land at 399 Burwood Road, Hawthorn.

Amendment C385boro proposes to rezone the site from Public Use Zone 6 (PUZ6) to Commercial 1 Zone (C1Z).

Rezoning has potential community benefits

The land presents a strategic property opportunity, with the potential for community-wide benefits.

In its current state, Serpells Lane is an under-utilisation of the land. We have identified this and shared it in the Glenferrie Structure Plan (2011) and the Council report (25 July 2022).

Rezoning would enable greater possible commercial returns if we decided to proceed with selling the land. Then, the additional funding from the sale could help deliver key projects throughout Boroondara.

Current status - March 2023

The independent Panel appointed to consider submissions to Amendment C385boro has concluded its hearing on 28 February 2023.

The independent Panel will now prepare its report which is expected to be received by Council within 60 business days. 

Council officers will review the report and prepare a report for consideration by the UPDC with recommendations.  Council does not need to accept the Panel’s recommendations and may resolve to make additional changes to the amendment.

The report is likely to be considered by the UPDC in May. 

All submitters to the amendment as well as any affected and adjoining property owners and occupiers will have the opportunity to address the UPDC in support of their submission and any Council officer recommendations.
