    Design Changes for 103 Beach Street (Foodstore) Development

    Revised plans for 103 Beach Street (which formerly was the Beacon Cove Foodstore) have recently been advertised by the City of Port Phillip (CoPP). 

    The main differences between this set of plans and the previously approved plans seem to be:

    • An additional storey (resulting in a five storey building) and roof terrace;
    • Increased number of dwellings from 12 to 22;
    • Amendments to the fa├žade and building envelope;
    • Deletion of the food and drink premises and associated increase of supermarket leasable floor area from 480sqm to 794sqm;
    • Additional level of basement car parking, increasing parking provisions from 30 to 51; and
    • Increase bicycle parking provisions from 24 to 46.

    To view the revised planning application you will have to follow the following steps (CoPP have changed their website and direct links no longer seem to work):

    1. Click this link
    2. Select "Applications on Notification"
    3. Search "103 Beach" or "673/2015/C"
    4. Click View. This will open a pane on the left hand side of the screen with an item Attachments (9 items)
    5. Click on Attachments and the attachments will be shown with options for downloading

    The due date for submissions about these revised plans is 21 March 2022. Submissions can be made from the web page you have got to above (ie after following the first four steps).

    Submissions will still be able to be made after this date until the time that the City of Port Phillip makes a decision on the application. Decisions can be made by council officers if 15 or fewer objections are made, otherwise council officers prepare a report for the councillors and the councillors will vote on the application at a council planning meeting.

    The BCNA is examining the plans and is looking for feedback from the community to help inform BCNA position on this proposal so please contact us at if you have any comments.
