Port Phillip Council planning meeting, Tuesday 15 May

The Port Phillip Council will consider an application for 316 Bay St  [known as the Bay and Bridge Hotel], for the installation of 29 electronic gaming machines at its planning meeting on Tuesday 15 May at 6 pm at St Kilda Town Hall.  The recommendation being put to Council is for a refusal of the application on the grounds that 'the proposed installation of electronic gaming machines at the Hotel would not create a net community benefit as required by the Port Phillip Planning Scheme'.

Tuesday 15 May
At its planning meeting this evening, Council refused the application for the installation of 29 electronic gaming machines. Unfortunately, since the hotel has existing use rights, Council has no power to impose conditions on the proposed function rooms that will replace the accommodation on the first floor. The matter will now be heard at VCAT from 3 July.
