    BCNA Comments on Draft Fishermans Bend Framework

    The BCNA has provided comments on the Draft Fishermans Bend Framework which was released for public comment in October. The Draft Framework provides welcome detail on many aspects, but major concerns remain. These are about the poor decision-making model being used for the project (five organization are involved), the absence of an operational plan, and no agreed budget. Unless addressed the project will continue to proceed in a sub-optimal way. The BCNA submission explains these concerns and can be found here.

    BCNA Objects to Development at 10 Narooma Place

    There is a proposal (Application Number 773/2017) at 10 Narooma Place to demolish a garage and erect a three-storey dwelling. The BCNA has decided to object to this development because it would substantially change the character of the area. The homes in this area are predominantly two-storey. The BCNA believes the proposal does not comply with the Neighbourhood Character Overlay of the Port Phillip Planning Scheme. If approved, it would establish a precedent for similar proposals across Beacon Cove. The BCNA submission can be found here. The BCNA encourages members to look at the plans and respond directly to Council. This can be done on line at the City of Port Phillip’s website.
