    BCNA Objects to Development at 10 Narooma Place

    There is a new proposal (Application Number: 1025/2018) at 10 Narooma Place for “... partial demolition, alterations and additions; the construction of a first-floor studio above the existing garage...” A previous proposal for a three-level dwelling on the site of the garage at this address was rejected by the City of Port Phillip in March 2018.

    The BCNA supports changes to properties that are in accord with the relevant planning provisions. However, the BCNA has concerns about this development as it would substantially change the character of the area. The BCNA believes the proposal does not comply with the Neighbourhood Character Overlay of the Port Phillip Planning Scheme, the Neighbourhood provisions, and that the visual bulk and massing of the development is not in keeping with the design of the area. If approved, it would establish a precedent for similar proposals across Beacon Cove.  The BCNA submission can be found here.
