Highett Neighbourhood Character Review

This project relates to two separate areas in Highett formerly zoned for industrial purposes and now zoned residential. These two areas are currently not covered by the Bayside Planning Scheme Neighbourhood Character Policy at Clause 22.07 as they were not zoned residential at the time that clause was introduced into the planning scheme.
