    Petition Seeks Lower Height for Barak Beacon Housing Redevelopment

    The BCNA has objected to the proposed height of the buildings - two towers of 9 and 11 storeys - as explained earlier in a submission to Homes Victoria. We have also explained this to Ward Councillors and to Nina Taylor MP, the Member for Albert Park.

    Garden City residents have also expressed concern at the traffic and parking implications of introducing roughly 1000 new residents to the area. Click here for a flyer explaining their concerns. These residents have developed a petition to be sent to the Minister for Planning, the Hon. Sonja Kilkenny, seeking a reduction in height to 4 and 5 storeys. This was the height indicated by the Victorian Government when the project was announced in 2022. If you would like to sign the petition it can be accessed here.
