Shape the future of planning in Kingston

Please note that due to significant interest the Central Ward meeting will now be held at Kingston City Hall. We are thrilled to have received such a great response to these meetings, and apologise for any inconvenience these changes may cause.

For further information, please email

You are invited to join us at an interactive, facilitated group discussion to help shape the future of planning in Kingston.

The Victorian Government estimates Melbourne will grow to 7.7 million people by 2051. Our city can’t keep sprawling outwards, so we’re facing the challenge of how to accommodate more people without losing the amenity of our neighbourhoods.

Council has long-campaigned to see population growth in our key activity centres, close to public transport, shops and services. This would help to protect the neighbourhood character and amenity of our quieter residential streets.

We’ve just launched a Housing Strategy, Neighbourhood Character Study, Parking Strategy and a Planning Scheme Review, and we need your input to ensure your voice is heard.

The Housing Strategy and Neighbourhood Character Study will address the future housing needs of our community for the next 20 years and beyond. It will set out the types of development preferred in different parts of Kingston, including areas where minimal, incremental or substantial change may be appropriate.

Join us at the Councillor Ward Meeting to discuss and workshop key issues including:

  • lot sizes and site coverage
  • new infill development
  • loss of garden areas
  • overlooking and privacy issues
  • future housing needs
  • housing affordability
  • level of control councils have over planning.
