Recently Committee members of the BCNA met with Mark Lopez, the Liberal Party candidate for the lower house seat of Albert Park to press for commitments regarding proposals and rumours on potential developments of the property at 1 - 11 Waterfront Place. We believe it is important for members to understand as clearly as possible the circumstances surrounding this key issue as we enter the State elections on 27 November.
The Committee has clearly heard from the local community that any large or inappropriate development at this location is not acceptable. Hence the meeting last week. Mark Lopez arranged for Matthew Guy, MLA and Shadow Minister for Planning, to respond to our questions.

Wednesday 17th November
Port Melbourne Town Hall
Subject: Port Melbourne Waterfront - Princes Pier workshop
I am seeking interest from you, your community group or anyone you know who may have an interest in this topic to register for participating in a workshop on Princes Pier history, and ways it may be interpreted for possible inclusion in the Princes Pier project which is being managed by the State Government through Major Projects Victoria.
The workshop is planned to be run out of the Port Melbourne Town Hall on the 17th November between 2 – 4pm. It will be quite informal with lots of time to discuss the topic, how you can participate and next steps in the project. As per the attachment the workshop is one of two planned and this is a great opportunity to be involved in this project. The workshop will be facilitated by consultants experienced in this type of work and are engaged by the City of Port Phillip.
When convenient if you could email me your interest in participating and contact details it would be greatly appreciated. I will forward more details to those who wish to attend closer to the workshop day.
