    VCAT Decision on 1-7 Waterfront Place

    VCAT has released their decision on the developer’s appeal against conditions imposed by the City of Port Phillip's (CoPP) when they granted a permit. The VCAT decision can be accessed here. The decision upholds the developer’s appeal to dismiss the conditions so it is likely the development will proceed with the proposed ten storey design, including the overshadowing issues that were the subject of the appeal. No timeframe has been announced by the developer.

    The BCNA has constructively participated over 14 years of design approval, with the design being revised from a 19-storey tower to a 10-storey building with attractive features including setback. The BCNA will monitor status as the CoPP considers options and will continue to support good design principles that maximise residents’ amenity and protect our foreshore.
