    Reminder - Submissions Due Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design Framework

    Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design Framework
    City of Port Phillip
    Reminder - Submissions Due 1st June 2013

    As advised on the13th May via an email from the Secretary, BCNA, the closing date for Council acceptances of submissions on the draft CoPP Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design Framework (as approved for consultation) is nominally 1st June 2013.

    Our BCNA President has consulted with Council officers and received assurance that CoPP will consider submissions received subsequent to this date. Sooner rather than later would be wise as we have no indication as to how long this extension will apply.
    Note that this Framework includes Beacon Cove Promenade, Princes Pier and the Bay and Beach Street Hub, but excludes privately owned property e.g. 1- 7 Waterfront Place, there being a quite separate process for establishment of CoPP's position in relation to this area.

    Those who have previously forwarded submission to Council on the Port Melbourne Waterfront UDF (which then included 1- 7 Waterfront Place) will need to resubmit for this latest round
    That is, you may wish to prepare a new submission or resubmit previous correspondence deleting reference to 1 - 7 Waterfront Place or resubmit previous correspondence acknowledging to Council that you are aware that references to 1-7 Waterfront Place are not directly relevant to the current consultation process.
    Click here to go the CoPP website page with full details of the 2013 framework and see further down the page on how you can make a submission.

    How to have your say

    The City of Port Phillip will be accepting submissions to the Draft Port Melbourne Waterfront UDF 2013 until 1 June 2013. Council will then consider all submissions, make any necessary changes to the work, and adopt a final document.

    Exhibition: The Borough and Its People: Port Melbourne 1839 to 1939


    The Borough and Its People: Port Melbourne 1839 to 1939 - the book and the exhibition

    Exhibition closes on Friday 31 May 2013

    Foyer/Gallery at Port Melbourne Town Hall

    333 Bay Street

    Interested in the history of Port Melbourne?  Find out more and visit the exhibition this week.

    Port Melbourne residents, Graham and Margaret Bride, have written an accessible, illustrated history of Port Melbourne from the year Liardet stepped ashore at 'the beach' in 1839 to the eve of the second World War. 

    There 'is something for everyone' in this publication as Professor Weston Bate said in launching the book.

    The book is supported by an exhibition of a very high standard in the foyer/gallery of the Port Melbourne Town Hall at 333 Bay St. The exhibition is laid out according to the chapter headings of the book. If you haven't got the time to read the book, you can get an excellent overview of it from the exhibition. It closes on Friday.

    The book is available from the newsagent and the Port Melbourne Town Hall Assist desk
