Update on 1-7 Waterfront Place

In July, the City of Port Phillip (CoPP) refused an application for “Construction of a 10-storey mixed use building over two basement levels containing 175 dwellings and two retail premises of 355 square metres and a reduction in car parking requirements”. The application was refused on many grounds but included overshadowing of the foreshore and pedestrian spaces, and visual bulk and massing related to tower design.

It is a great shame that the site continues to look like a rubbish tip. The BCNA has raised this with the CoPP many, many times. We have been told that CoPP's Local Laws are ineffective in enforcing a clean-up and that a review of Local laws offered the hope of a solution. Unfortunately, this has turned out not to be the case. The recently completed review did not reveal any further way that Local Laws could be strengthened to deal with this situation.

The BCNA has written to the Mayor asking for a public explanation.
