About Frankston Council

Frankston Council AreaFrankston City Council aligns with Port Phillip Bay approximately 40km south-east of Melbourne. With an area of 131 square km, its approximate 10km coastline accommodates the localities of Frankston and Seaford, and suburbs including Carrum Downs, Karingal, Sandhurst, Skye and Langwarrin lie just inland.

The Mornington Peninsula sits just below Frankston City Council, making Frankston a gateway to the peninsula and a hub for residents of both shires with its array of amenities from education, to shopping and leisure, healthcare and more. Frankston has undergone a major facelift over recent years, transforming it into an employment and economic centre, having created many work and living opportunities.

The Frankston City Council area boasts gorgeous beaches and lookouts, tranquil parks, and plenty of places for families to visit and play. Frankston displays its amplitude of culture with an abundance of street art and sculptures adorning the city.

Planning a project in Frankston?

You might be tempted to complete the Frankston City Council planning process yourself in order to save money. This is understandable, and it might save you money, but it also might end up costing you more in lost time or result in a poor outcome.  In the long run the hours spent learning local council rules, regulations, processes and procedures can be extensive and exhausting.  Then you need to complete a planning report and collect all the information the council require, which varies depending on the site, the type of project, the specific planning controls and more. When a planning application is lodged incorrectly or with insufficient information, it creates unnecessary delays and could even see your application rejected.
