220 Esplanade East, Port Melbourne

As you can see, this would not have been the first dwelling on this site.
Council considered, and refused, this application in August 2010. It had been recommended for approval by Council's planner. The application involves
  • the demolition of the existing post-war house and removal of 4 Grevillea robusta ['silky oad'] trees on the McCormack St boundary. Tree removal does not require a planning permit.
The construction of 4, two storey dwellings
  • dwellings 1 and 2 on the western side of the allotment with garages, vehicle access and front entrances off Esplanade East
  • dwellings 3 and 4 on the western side of the allotments with garages, vehicle access and front pedestrian entry off McCormack St
The full Council report is here.
The application is now before VCAT.
