    Plans for 103 Beach Street (the Foodstore Site)

    As reported earlier this site has new owners. It has been bought by the Luxcon group

    The BCNA is hoping to meet representatives of the owners very soon to hear about the plans. We will  pass on details as soon as possible.

    Council Support for Anti-Hoon Measures

    Since our last update, the BCNA has formally asked the City of Port Phillip (Council) to allocate funds for the purchase of one or more mobile CCTV units. We have also asked the Council to investigate the use of acoustic traffic cameras and to report back to Council later this year.

    The mobile CCTV units would be deployed by police to areas of need across the City of Port Phillip. The units serve as a deterrent to those considering anti-social behaviour and assist police in identifying offenders.

    The BCNA has been contacting other residents’ groups in Port Phillip to share information about anti hoon programs and to gain support for Council spending on anti hoon measures. Council will formally discuss the BCNA request at a future meeting.

    Town Planning, Covenants and Dispute Resolution in Beacon Cove

    Apologies to those who have seen this item before however, even though we posted on this subject back in 2017 and 2019, we still get lots of enquiries for assistance and support regarding planning controls and disputes. So to assist those who haven't seen it before we're reposting the relevant information.

    The BCNA supports upgrades to homes so long as changes comply with the Port Phillip Planning Scheme. Compliance iwth the planning scheme is the best way to maintain the unique character and amenity of Beacon Cove.

    From time-to-time residents seek advice on how to manage disputes regarding planning applications. The BCNA has prepared a short guide to assist members. Wherever possible, we encourage discussion with the owner to explain your concerns. Your concerns may be able to be resolved. 

    The BCNA position on planning controls and disputes can be downloaded here. There is also a permanent link to the document in the right hand column of our website under the heading "Reference Information and Documents" so that's where to look if you need it in future.
