CSIRO site

The federal government has announced the sale of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) site in Graham Road in Highett.

In response, we adopted its preferred future planning controls for the site should it be transferred into private ownership. At our May 2015 Ordinary Meeting, we adopted the Residential Growth Zone and a Development Plan Overlay as its preferred controls for the site.
