Draft Frankston Housing Strategy 2017: SCC

Postby Noel Tudball » Sun Oct 29, 2017 1:13 pm


The date for Submissions for this Draft has now passed, but there will be further opportunity for input
See: http://www.seafordcc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=393&p=747#p747

"The Frankston Housing Strategy draft update 2017 sets out a range of initiatives to accommodate the expected increase in local population."
While population continues to grow at Nationally unprecedented levels, there is little choice but to plan for this growth.

The SCC is keen to see others contribute to the discussion to ensure that "Growth" and "Protection" Zones are located in the correct areas.

For a different slant on the Strategy, the Submission by SHAC (Seaford Housing Action Coalition) is here: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=399


Feedback in writing is required before 5pm Friday 22 December 2017 (an extension from the original 30 November date).

Executive Summary:
  • The State Govt and (as a consequence) FCC are revising Housing Zones - all governments want to stop "urban sprawl", but still cater for the expected huge growth in population
  • The State Govt has gazetted 3 Zones:
    * NRZ (Neighbourhood Residential Zone - mandatory 9m = 2 storeys and 3 storeys with a flat roof)
    * GRZ (General Residential Zone - mandatory 11m = 3 storeys) and
    * RGZ (Residential Growth Zone - discretionary 13.5m = 5 storeys)
  • This 2017 review replaces FCC's 2013 C95 (New Residential Zones - Amendment C95) which was rejected by the State Govt Planning Panel) - http://www.seafordcc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=51
  • Whilst the 3 Zones retain the same names as used in C95, in March 2017, the State Govt changed definitions and parameters within each Zone

Housing Change Areas:
The Housing Framework Plan, presented at Figure 15 (of the full Frankston_Housing_Strategy_2017), delineates the housing change areas into four broad categories. These are:
  • Activity Structure Plan Areas that include Frankston Metropolitan Activity Centre and the Karingal Major Activity Area. Future housing in these areas should be located and of a scale and form consistent with the adopted Structure Plans for each Activity Area
  • Substantial Change Areas (including key opportunity sites) that provide for housing growth by a mix of housing types that predominantly includes medium to higher density housing in appropriate locations
  • Incremental Change Areas that allow for a variety of housing types including some medium density housing developments provided they respect the character of the neighbourhood
  • Minimal Change Areas that enable specific characteristics of the neighbourhood to be protected through greater design control over new housing development

Sustainable Melbourne:
This University of Melbourne document makes for interesting reading and many of the ideas could be incorporated in Frankston’s Vision for the Future by implementing Smarter Planning.

The revised FCC Housing Strategy 2017 Draft 3 is set to be decided upon at the 14 May 2018 FCC Meeting.
Here is SCC's Submission to that meeting.

The Seaford Community Committee (SCC) recommends that the Frankston Housing Strategy 2017 Version 3 (Final Draft) should not be accepted in its current state.

Email sent today:
Dear CEO, Councillors and Officers
Please find attached – “SCC Submission to FCC May 14 - Housing Strategy 2017”
We are looking for your support for the 3 amendments listed below.

Seaford’s flood risk simply cannot wait 12 years for Zone changes to occur. (Calculation is in the attached Submission.)

If Council is unwilling to reconsider the zoning without more investigation, then the current General Residential Zones applying to the Seaford Wetlands and Seaford residential environs subject to flooding MUST, as an interim measure, have a permeable land percentage of 40% applied to their Zone Schedules.
This will not prevent development but should ensure good design appropriate to the location. More information about how flooding has increased exponentially with increased residential development is included in the attached submission.

Requested amendments to Frankston Housing Strategy 2017 Version 3 Revised:
  • Item B4 be upgraded from “Medium” to “High” (Page 86 & 96)
  • Item B6 be upgraded from “Medium” to “High” (Page 86 & 97)
  • Item B7 be added as follows and prioritized as “High” (Page 86 & 97):
    B7. The current General Residential Zones applying to the Wetlands and residential environs subject to flooding in Seaford have a permeable land percentage of 40% applied to their Zone Schedules
