On the Council agenda for Tuesday 28 August

On Tuesday, Council will consider
  • a report regarding the covenants that apply to the land at 1 - 7 Waterfront Place
  • its submission to the Department of Human Services Social Housing Reforms
If you are interested in Waterfront Place, I recommend that you read the report in full, rather than my attempting to summarise it here. It gives the background, explains the issues and recommends a course of action.
The reports are available from the meeting and agendas page of Council's website. The Council meeting is at 6 pm in St Kilda. The final vision for the St Kilda Triangle will also be presented.
At this evening's meeting, Council unanimously supported the motion before it - that Council:
  • Declines Mirvac Victoria Pty Ltd's invitation to become arbiter of the covenants on 1 - 7 Waterfront Place
  • Notes the progress of the Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design Framework and the intention that this work will inform suitable planning controls for 1 - 7 Waterfront Place to guide the redevelopment of the site
