About City of Kingston

Map of Kingston Council AreaCity of Kingston lies along the shores of Port Phillip Bay, with suburbs Mentone, Parkdale, Mordialloc, Aspendale, Edithvale, Chelsea, Bonbeach and Carrum spanning the boundary along the bay. Carrum Downs, Chelsea Heights, Heatherton and Braeside are a few of the inland suburbs of City of Kingston.

The municipality itself is around 15km south of Melbourne and is one of Melbourne’s main employment districts with major industrial, manufacturing and commercial centres.

Patterson River was dug through the middle of the wetlands in the late 1800s to drain and provide flood protection and farmland. The river provides access to canals in Carrum and Bonbeach and is one of the most popular fishing and boating gateways to Port Phillip Bay.

Planning a project in Kingston?

You might be tempted to complete the Kingston 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.  Change of Plan can help. No matter who you are, we’ll make the process quick and easy.
