Update on Port Planning

The Victorian Ports Corporation (Melbourne) (VPCM) has released the results of the community consultation they conducted in Sep-Oct 2018. The objective of this consultation was to understand community views on the current operation of Station Pier and to collect ideas on future use of the pier and surrounding area. This information will be used in planning for the redevelopment of the pier. Major findings were:
  • Respondents have a strong emotional connection to Station Pier as a working port and as a historical landmark
  • Respondents visit Station Pier for a variety of reasons, but primarily to relax and socialise with friends and family
  • There is support for increased visitor numbers
Traffic congestion was the top concern.

A newsletter summarising the results of the consultation will be delivered to residents in coming weeks.  A copy can be downloaded here. A more detailed report can be downloaded here. VPCM has submitted a proposal for funding the redevelopment. This will be considered for inclusion in the next Victorian Budget (May 2019).
