The City of Bayside is located in the established inner southern suburbs of Melbourne. The municipality is predominantly residential, although there are major commercial centres at Brighton and Sandringham and some industrial areas in Sandringham and Cheltenham. Urban development in the City dates to the 1850s, with development initially around Brighton. Development generally followed the railway line to Sandringham (initially to North Brighton then Brighton Beach), which was constructed in the 1860s. Residential development continued up until the 1950s in areas furthest from the railway and tram such as Brighton East and Beaumaris. The primary housing market role that the City of Bayside has played during this period was to provide home owning opportunities for families and prospective families from the inner and inner southern suburbs of Melbourne.
