    Waterfront Place Precinct “Master Plan” Initiative Receives Boost

    Many local residents will be aware that the BCNA has identified the Waterfront Place Precinct as a priority area for attention by all three levels of Government, with the development of a “master plan” for the area the most important first step.

    This initiative has been given a boost by a major article in the July edition of Southbank Local News which has highlighted the issues and the need for a solution, with interviews with several key stakeholders.

    These included both our local members (The Hon. Martin Foley MP, The Hon. Josh Burns, MP), the Mayor of the City of Port Phillip, Cr Dick Gross, and the CEO of the Victorian Ports Corporation (Melbourne), Rachel Johnson. All agreed that change was needed and that a plan for the whole precinct was the first priority.

    The BCNA will continue to push for the establishment of a planning committee and the development of a master plan for the precinct, followed by appropriate re-development and upgrading.
