    Further Update on Boat Landing Closure

    We have received a further update from the City of Port Phillip on the closure of the boat landing next to Mr Hobsons and D'lish Fish on Station Pier:

    Contractors will be commencing works to repair the failed piles next Monday, 17th January. The works commencement was slightly delayed and based on the current schedule provided, we anticipate these works to be completed by 4th March. Parks Victoria have been advised and will be issuing a notice to mariners. Additionally, the St Kilda Ferry service will continue to operate from the Eastern promenade throughout the works and the contractors have been advised of their schedule to avoid any conflicts and ensure their safety.

    Further inspections are also being undertaken currently on the Eastern and Southern promenades to inform their detailed condition and any relevant findings will be shared once these are completed.

    Barak-Beacon Road Housing Redevelopment

    Some residents may be aware of the proposed redevelopment of the Barak-Beacon Road public housing, part of the State Government’s “Big Housing Build”. The government first announced this strategy in late 2020 as an initiative to construct more than 12,000 new homes throughout metro and regional Victoria. The “Big Housing Build” has announced plans for housing renewal in a number of suburbs but to date there has been little mention of initiatives in Port Melbourne and indeed, in Port Phillip. Recently however, residents of the Barak Road housing received notice of plans to evacuate the area to enable redevelopment. The BCNA has met with local residents and will continue involvement to help ensure appropriate community consultation occurs and that residents are treated with care and respect as planning proceeds.
