Redevelopment of the London Hotel Site

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has completed a five day hearing on the owner’s application for the redevelopment of the site. This is for an eight storey building comprising a restaurant on the ground floor and seven levels of residences.

The BCNA was an objector to the application as well as the City of Port Phillip (CoPP), a group of residents at “The Anchorage”, and other nearby residents. Objections included overshadowing of nearby residences, privacy of nearby residences, overshadowing of the foreshore in June, a waiver of the requirements for a loading bay which means trucks need to load and unload from the street, and on-site parking for residents and their visitors.

VCAT typically provides written decisions within 4-6 weeks.
