EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
Membership of Frankston Design Review Panel
The new look Frankston City is fast capturing its status of the eastern capital of Port Phillip. New residents, businesses and investors are increasingly drawn to the enviable quality of life, strategic location and outstanding opportunities offered by this thriving regional capital on the bay.
The waterfront has been transformed and the City Centre is being revitalised through urban design, streetscape works, the establishment of new art and entertainment precincts and major commercial developments that reflect the attractiveness of Frankston to the private sector. Designated as a Transit City further improvements are planned around its transport network to create a sustainable and connected community with easy access to jobs, facilities and services.

The role will involve providing expert design advice and assessment as part of a Panel for the following types of projects:
