TO achieve the best outcome for the Glen Eira community.
. Genuine Consultation
. Permanent height limits for main road shopping strips
. Protecting our neighbourhoods
Save Glen Eira acts as an ‘umbrella’ group, bringing together representatives from various Glen Eira community and resident groups, and:
- providing a forum for discussion
- sharing information and resources
- organising events and activities
- providing a collective voice
We want Council to introduce processes based on genuine community consultation, accountability, transparency and sustainability. These are not just ‘buzz words’ – they are the basis of responsive, good governance.
Local government is generally considered to be the most representative and responsive level of government – yet for too long Glen Eira Council’s performance has fallen short of residents’ expectations (as shown by the annual Community Satisfaction Survey). Residents continue to feel uninformed and excluded from participation in Council decisions that impact their lives.
Save Glen Eira aims to provide a framework that enables all residents’ voices to be heard and responded to.
Our Steering Committee comprises members of resident and community groups from across the municipality, including Stop the Elsternwick Towers, Caulfield South RAID, and groups from Bentleigh, Carnegie and elsewhere. Many members have years of experience liaising with Council over planning issues, and extensive knowledge of the planning system.
Steering Committee members bring issues from their own local groups to Save Glen Eira meetings, and report back to their groups about Save Glen Eira activities and advice.
