Design Excellence Program

Our Design Excellence Program aims to improve the quality of development in Darebin and create sustainable and liveable neighbourhoods.

The Design Excellence Program aims to improve the quality of development in Darebin. It will address the climate emergency by creating sustainable and liveable neighbourhoods that stand the test of time.

As part of the program, we've developed initiatives to meet the social, economic and environmental needs of our growing population. The program outlines our expectations and encourages developers to submit well-designed planning applications that improve amenity for the community.

You can get more information about the program and our initiatives downloading our Darebin Design Excellence Program information sheet.
