Next Monday's Council meeting is at Port

Another step towards Council taking planning responsibility for the residential areas of Beacon Cove


On Monday evening, 11 July, Council will consider a report and recommendation to adopt Amendment C73 to the Port Phillip Planning Scheme and to submit the amendment to the Minister for Planning for approval. Amendment C73 translates the covenants on the residential properties of Beacon Cove into planning controls that will be administered by the City of Port Phillip. The report is accompanied by detailed design principles for the estate as a whole, and guidelines for the sub-precincts within it. The intention of the guidelines is to protect the character of Beacon Cove which is so valued by people living there. This work has been several years in preparation, and the outcome reflects a high level of cooperation between the Beacon Cove community and Council. The full reports and attachments are available here or from the Council meeting page on the links list on the right hand menu.
