    BCNA Objects to Development at 81 Beacon Vista

    There is a proposal (Application Number 902/2020) at 81 Beacon Vista to undertake a partial demolition, alterations and additions, and the construction of ground, first and second floor additions. The BCNA has decided to object to this development because 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.

    81 Beacon Vista is a residence with a distinct tower form on a corner block. The proposed extension to the tower is not in keeping with the surrounding area. The addition also imposes massing and visual bulk to the detriment of the surrounding area. Overall, the proposal is not in keeping with the policies for development in the Port Phillip Planning Scheme.  The BCNA submission can be found here. The BCNA encourages members to look at the plans and respond directly to the council online.
