Evolving Port

Port Melbourne continues to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new houses take their place. New forms of housing are created. Port Houses records some of these changes.

18 Lyons St, Port Melbourne

1 July 2017
This property is once again for sale. It has significantly deteriorated since 2011 when it was last the subject of planning discussion.
Advertised for the land. Just land.
Curious that I should have noticed this property for sale today, exactly six years to the day since I last posted about this property.



1 July 2011

Approval for the demolition of this dwelling and the construction of a three level building containing two dwellings with associated basement carparking was given by VCAT in August 2009 as Council had not made a decision within the required time. 
Discussion at VCAT centred on the nature and character of Lyons St:
'The street and surrounding neighbourhood is characterised by mainly late Victorian era housing interspersed with a number of circa 1960s alterations or infill houses along Lyons St, circa 1970s housing facing Esplanade West and circa 1960s walk up flats along Dow St to the rear and a circa 1930s Masonic Lodge along Liardet St. Lyons St is mixed in appearance' [Fredman Molina Planning Pty Ltd vs Port Phillip CC,13]
