The Neighbourhood Character Study has been prepared to guide how new residential development will be required to respond to the existing and preferred character across Hobsons Bay.

The municipality is experiencing changes in residential development that impact on neighbourhood character. Hobsons Bay, like the rest of metropolitan Melbourne, is under pressure to accommodate new medium and higher density development. Changes to the existing streetscapes can impact on existing neighbourhood character so it is important that Council has the right planning policy tools in place to appropriately protect and preserve neighbourhood character.

The new study can be found here, with the associated brochures here.

If you require any assistance or have question please see the "who's listening" box on the right of this page.

NOTE: Every care has been taken to ensure the information provided by the New Residential Zones interactive tool is correct. However, Hobsons Bay City Council does not accept any liability to any person or organisation for the information it provides.
