Evolving Port

Port Melbourne and Fishermans Bend continue to change. Houses are changed or demolished and new forms of housing take their place. Port Houses records some of these changes.

Planning matters

The City of Port Phillip approved application 112/2016 for 'part demolition; alterations and additions including a two-storey addition to rear of the existing dwelling and the construction of a new front fence' on 8 June 2017. 

The decision was appealed to VCAT which approved the application on 26 September 2017.

Looking sad. Weeds in the clever garden beds on top of the wall admired a year or so ago.
Apparently terminal decline while planning matters are being resolved.


October 2013

The house was sold on 5 October 2013 for $760,000. (source Buxton)

Two disappearing features of houses - the Hills Hoist and the sleepout.
