Home / Bayside City Council Meeting votes to pursue Planning Scheme Amendment C140

Bayside City Council’s Special Meeting on 2015-12-14 was called to
consider whether the Council would pursue its proposed Planning Scheme Amendment C140, after it had invited written submissions and speakers that wished to address the Council meeting on it.

A video of it is at http://stream.bayside.vic.gov.au/archive/video15-1214.php

Speakers supporting C140 for a 3-minute allotted period included those below, at the start time in minutes below – on the video time bar at the
hyperlink – and are well worth hearing:

22:00 Brian Davey     

24:00 Alberto Colla       

29:00 Chris Sutton  
34:00 Steve Smith
37:00 Colin Martin     

44:00 Diana Pearce    

47:00 Geoffrey Goode

There were 23 speakers that took one view, and 22 that took the opposite view.

At 157:00 on the video, Cr Alex del Porto, of Northern Ward, can be heard moving a motion to support C140, followed by his 4-minute explanation of his support. At 160:00, Cr Heather Stewart, of Southern Ward, seconded his motion, and explained her support.

The motion was carried, with Crs del Porto, Stewart, Evans and Long in favour, and Crs Frederico, Heffernan and Lowe against it. The CEO said the next step is for it to be considered by a Panel appointed by the Planning Minister, with a view to its recommending to the Minister whether he should adopt it or reject it.

Supporters will need to appear before that Panel if that stage of the process is to have a good chance of success.
