    London Hotel redevelopment

    The City of Port Phillip has advertised an application to re-develop the London Hotel site at 92 Beach Street and 2-4 Princes Street.  The proposal is for an eight storey mixed use building comprising a restaurant on the ground floor and 32 dwellings above.

    BCNA has lodged an Objection on the grounds that:
    1) the planned building will lead to overshadowing of the bay trail the bike and pedestrian paths on the foreshore in mid-Winter;
    2) the proposed waiver of a loading bay at the site;
    3) a reduction in car parking for the building’s residents; and
    4) argues that some parking should be provided for restaurant patrons.

    The BCNA objection is based on research by BCNA member Jill Maddox.
