Council meeting Tuesday 12 June is at South Melbourne

I would like to bring to your attention two significant reports going to Council tomorrow night. Neither of them are Port Melbourne topics but they are relevant to the future of Port Melbourne and the City of Port Phillip as a whole. Council will consider two major strategic planning documents:
  • Montague Precinct Structure Plan - consultation draft
  • St Kilda Triangle vision - consultation draft
The Montague Precinct Structure Plan plans for the transformation of the area generally bounded by Boundary St and Fishermans Bend to the west, the Westgate Freeway to the north, City Road to the south, and the St Kilda Light Rail line/96 to the east,  into a new residential suburb capable of accommodating up to 25,000 people. It envisages a highly sustainable precinct supported by appropriate community and social infrastructure with higher growth towards the northern end. If you follow the links to open the document, there are maps to help get your bearings as well as the detail of principles, themes and objectives that will guide future planning for the area.
A great deal of councillor and officer time has gone into the careful preparation of the St Kilda Triangle vision document which is now placed before you for your consideration and feedback.
