Martin Street Structure Plan (C152)

The Bayside Housing Strategy 2012 identified the area around the Gardenvale Train Station as an area that should accommodate moderate residential growth. 

To guide how this growth should occur, we have developed the Martin Street Structure Plan that helps outline how commercial and residential development should occur in the future. The development of the Martin Street Structure Plan involved three rounds of community consultation which helped to inform the final Structure Plan.

We are now undertaking the formal process, called Amendment C152, to implement the vision, objectives and strategies of the Martin Street Structure Plan into the Bayside Planning Scheme.

Where does the amendment apply?

The amendment applies to the Martin Street Activity Centre as identified in the map below:
