We are proposing to rezone three former early years sites to residential.

The site locations are:

  • 4 Coorie Avenue, Bayswater (the Coorie Avenue Children and Family Centre);
  • 10 Tamara Street, Wantirna South (the NG Haynes Children and Family Centre); and
  • The south-east corner of 69-75 Eildon Parade, Rowville (the Eildon Parade Preschool) that is currently zoned Public Use Zone – Local Government (PUZ6).

Our proposal is to rezone each site from the Public Use Zone (Schedule 6) to the Neighbourhood Residential Zone (Schedule 4). This will ensure any future development or use on the three sites is not out of character, and will fit in with the existing residential neighbourhoods.

This amendment is formally known as Amendment C174knox
