21 April 2015
The application for 453-457 Graham St was considered by the City of Port Phillip at the Statutory Planning Meeting on 21 April 2015. (P04502014)
Zoning: Commercial 1
Overlays: None
The report said
The site is not located within a Heritage Overlay. Therefore the Heritage Policy does not apply to this site. Neither of the adjoining sites on Graham Street nor any site on the western side of Graham Street between Williamstown Road and Walter Street are within a Heritage Overlay. The adjoining properties to the west at 432 Williamstown Road and 59 Crichton Avenue are however located within Heritage Overlay No.2 and are located within Garden City Estate. Given the separation of these sites by the rear laneway and the mid-block location of the development, the building would not impact on the heritage value of these sites. These buildings would continue to be prominent in their respective streetscapes and would not be overwhelmed by the proposed development. Moreover it is considered that the three storey height would be an acceptable graduation in height from these two storey scale buildings.Click here to read the full report.
While the Council officer supported the application, it was refused by the Council at the planning meeting. At the subsequent appeal to VCAT, a permit was granted on 1 12 2015.
