We’re working with our local community, both residents and businesses, to make the City of Greater Dandenong one of the most sustainable cities in Australia by 2030.
The City of Greater Dandenong is a city of opportunity with a vibrant economy and one of the most culturally diverse communities in Australia. Much of what makes our city such a great place to work live and play is underpinned by the health of our environment and the value it brings to the municipality and its community.
The new 2030 Sustainability Strategy maps out the goals, objectives and key priorities that will ensure a sustainable future for the Greater Dandenong. Council has undertake extensive community consultation to help point us in the right direction with the Draft Strategy.
“I am concerned about the lack of foresight in allowing so much intensive building in our backstreets. Not enough land is left for any greenery. There is no consideration given to the neighbours access to sunlight or their privacy in cases of double storey encroachment. There is no restriction on car numbers so the street is full of them. You cant see the other side of the street. This is dangerous for pedestrians as well as being ugly and polluting. These issues relate to public transport being made more the norm as well as town planning and building approval being fair to residents not just good for developers and council rates. We need less cars on the road and therefore council and state government need to step in. For example no house has more than two cars would be a reasonable start. ”
“I am horrified so much high density buildings are being allowed in Noble Park. It's a shame that such a perfectly geographically positioned suburb is being set up for an overcrowded , undervalued and over polluted area. A suburb which should be promoted as a gateway ( 15 min to the beach, 30 min to the CBD, 20 min to Chadstone, 20 min to Southland, 20 min to the Glen, 5 min to our quirky and just right Parkmore!,... Etc...) is still being seen as a low end suburb and it's 'reputation' as such is being encouraged by the quick money grab. How can you promote and spend money on an 'Environmental Plan' when decisions made in the council seem so contradictory .”
