    Panel Hearings on Fishermans Bend

    Planning Panels Victoria is conducting hearings on the proposed Amendment to the Port Phillip Planning Scheme for Fishermans Bend. The BCNA’s views were part of a presentation presented by Rowan Groves, President of Port People, on behalf of South Port Urban Responsible Renewal (SPURR). SPURR represents 49 community groups in the South Melbourne, Port Melbourne and nearby areas.

    The SPURR presentation assessed the adequacy of the proposed Amendment to achieve the Government’s Vision for the area and the objectives for the Amendment. The BCNA and SPURR have consistently argued that the project requires better governance and an agreed budget if the Vision is to be realized. The presentation explained that it is premature to develop the Amendment until all planning for the area has been completed and can be accessed here.
