Vision for Mentone
The City of Kingston has prepared a Structure Plan for the Mentone Major Activity Centre in order to provide an integrated response to the change envisaged for this centre over the next twenty years. The vision for Mentone Activity Centre is 'to enhance the beauty of Mentone by celebrating its past whilst capitalising on the role it now plays as a significant centre of activity'.
Why create a Structure Plan for Mentone?
The development of the Structure Plan follows on from work undertaken by Council through the P.L.A.N project. This earlier project identified the broad parameters for growth in key Activity Centres and has provided a platform for the manner in which future development is managed through the individual structure plans.
A structure plan is a long term guide for change to land use, building and public spaces in an activity centre. A structure plan creates a framework detailing how the centre is planned to develop and the actions needed to realise that framework. A structure plan will usually require an amendment to the Council Planning Scheme as one of its implementation mechanisms.
