The current draft plan has overlays to allow 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8 storey buildings proposed. Some of the 4, 5 & 6 storey overlays are in residential zones. The challenge for Council is to encourage appropriate development in sites that need a refresh while protecting residential areas, views, vistas and streetscapes.

The following mock-ups compare different parts of Ivanhoe as they are now, and what they may look like with 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 storey buildings.

Example 1: Heidelberg Rd north of Darebin Station

Most residents agree there are some areas of Ivanhoe are in need of a facelift. Council have identified some areas that "do not reflect stated community values". As an example one such area has been identified as the strip between Darebin Station and Heidelberg Rd which currently houses a caryard and vacant block.

While many people would welcome redevelopment of this site what do you think is appropriate? 2, 3, 4, 5 storeys? Or perhaps no change? How much parking would be required for new residents?
