City of Port Phillip St Kilda Triangle Decision - Beacon Cove Neighbourhood Association & Port People Joint Statement 25 January 2010

Beacon Cove Neighbourhood Association & Port People
Joint Statement 25 January 2010



City of Port Phillip St Kilda Triangle Decision

The City of Port Phillip’s decision to withdraw from the St Kilda Triangle contract on the basis of agreed compensation to the developer, CITA, is acknowledged as a reasonable outcome.

BCNA and PP welcome the certainty that the decision gives to the Community. We do have what we believe are legitimate concerns regarding the financial implications that the compensation may have on budget allocations for Port Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip overall.

The future development of the Triangle site is also of concern as the current elected council has to confront its stated opposition to the previous development proposal but now come up with a good alternative. To leave the area as it is in the longer term is not a reasonable position.

We stress the importance of getting a new proposal right, in order to deliver an outcome that has sound vision, is creditable and has benefit for the whole community and is not only the view of sectional interests.


E. Micallef President of Beacon Cove Neighbourhood Association (BCNA)

A. Pappas President of Port People (PP)
