Dromana Township Plan

Dromana Township Plan and Residential Investigation Report

The Dromana Township Plan will set out the long-term strategic vision for the potential scale and form of buildings within the Dromana town centre and surrounding residential areas.

Some of the topics to be considered by the plan include:

  • heights and setbacks
  • view lines and vistas
  • existing and future built form precincts
  • areas of potential change
  • key sites.

Council resolved at its Planning Services Committee Meeting on Monday 30 April 2018 to place the Draft Dromana Township Plan and the Draft Dromana Residential Investigation Areas Report on a six-week public exhibition period.

Both the draft plan and draft report primarily aim to address the lack of building controls across specific areas of Dromana in order to guide future development of private land. 

Some of the key recommendations of the draft plan are as follows:

Town Centre

  • Reinforce the prevailing coastal township streetscape character of Dromana.
  • Maintain the low scale built form character of Dromana.
  • Protect key views from the foreshore, across the town centre towards Arthurs Seat.
  • Strengthen Pier Street as the ‘heart’ of the township.
  • Create a secondary laneway network.
  • Transition built form to abutting residential zoned land.

Surrounding Residential Area

  • Preferred 2 storey (9 metre) maximum building height.
  • Design controls specific to the varying individual characteristics of residential areas within the study area, including:
    • Preferred external materials that reference the coastal environment.
    • Low permeable front fencing.
    • Native landscaping with front setbacks.
    • Rear 5 metre setbacks.
    • Roof configurations to adopt a pitched or skillion profile, discouraging flat roofs.

Dromana Residential Investigation Areas

The draft report is specific to two residential areas separate to that considered by the draft plan.

Some of the key recommendations of the draft report are as follows:

  • 2 storey (8 metre) maximum building height.
  • Design controls specific to the varying individual characteristics of residential areas within the study area, including:
    • Preferred external materials that reference the coastal environment.
    • Low permeable front fencing
