JULY 2001

Developer of 17-19 Mary Street, Beaumaris, which has barely been started, seeks extension of 1997 four-year permit, for the 1:348 square metre 4-dwelling proposal. It is now inconsistent with Bayside’s 1:400 sq.metre goal. Objection needed before noon on 30 July.

Bayside Council still taking a Hard Line: Motion by Moysey Ward councillor to refuse application to build 2 dwellings at 11 Anita Street, Beaumaris, on grounds of clash with Neighbourhood Character, lost

 E-mail if you have seen any flocks of Pardalotes of late, please. A flock of about 20 were sighted feeding at the top of a 12 metre high River Red Gum in Anita Street this month. It was not the first sighting in Anita Street – it still has some of its once numerous Red Gums.
