Its a big Port Melbourne agenda next Wednesday

The agenda for the Council meeting on 23 May has a very strong Port focus. Many issues of great importance for Port will be considered:
  • request for assistance from SouthPort Playhouse
  • North Port Oval - outcomes of the consultation
  • Process for revision of the Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design Framework and proposed consultation and engagement strategy
  • Proposed sale of land at 174 Nott St [currently occupied by Decanters, cnr Pool and Lalor St]
  • Beacon Cove asset handover [this includes the Promenade, the carpark in front of Station Pier and the restaurants]
I am looking forward to Council assuming responsibility for the remaining areas of Beacon Cove so that we can actively manage these areas. The whole of Beacon Cove will then be managed by the City of Port Philip. It has been very frustrating for many years for residents to have to deal with several authorities. I am not at all in favour of Council selling 174 Nott St. I do not support this direction at all. All the meeting papers and reports can be accessed here. The Council meeting will be held in St Kilda on Wednesday from 6 pm.
