Advisory Committee Established for 1-7 Waterfront Place

The Minister for Planning has now established an Advisory Committee to provide advice to him on the use of the site. The BCNA has received a letter explaining the process and Terms of Reference. The Advisory Committee has been asked whether the developer’s planning permit should be issued and if so, what would be the appropriate conditions for the permit. The developer’s planning permit application was for a 10-storey mixed use building including 174 dwellings and two retail premises.

The BCNA will be considering the papers and preparing a response. Details will be provided once plans are finalised. Key dates are a Directions Hearing (which is open for anyone to attend) on 9 October 2019 and Hearing Dates from 25 November to 6 December 2019.

Waterfront Welcomers - Volunteers Needed

Waterfront Welcomers, the volunteer group who greet the cruise ship passengers at Station Pier, are urgently looking for volunteers.

This will be the fourth season of the programme, and they are looking for enthusiastic, passionate people to join their band of volunteers to assist passengers with their queries and tell them all about the sights/experiences of Port Melbourne and City of Port Phillip. No experience necessary - they will do all the training.

This year's cruise ship season begins in October 2019 and runs through to March 2020.

For further enquiries call Brian on 03 9645 1476 or email waterfrontwelcomers@southportcc.org.au.
