    Update on 1-7 Waterfront Place

    In the third week of December the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) brought down its interim decision on the action from the site owner to remove or vary the covenants at 1-7 Waterfront Place community centre.

    BCNA and Save Port Melbourne Gateway objected to the action but VCAT decided in favour of the owner that it would allow variation to the covenants for a building up to 10 storey in line with Planning Scheme Amendment C104. This Amendment is awaiting final decision between the Department of Planning and the City of Port Phillip.

    Discussions are also taking place to protect the pathway and bike trail from overshadowing at the winter solstice. Further information will be posted when it becomes available.
