New plan goes out for comment

New plan goes out for comment Image

The City of Port Phillip has released a revised streetscape design for the Ferrars St education and community precinct, which is now available for the public to make comment on.

The community has until Friday, March 10 to provide feedback on the new proposed design, which was shaped by a round of consultation late last year.

The council has been provided more time to revise a more informed plan for the precinct after the State Government informed it in December that it didn’t have the required developer contributions available to fund the project under its original timeframe.

Mayor Bernadene Voss said Council was eager to receive feedback on the proposed design.

“We have listened to community concerns and the revised streetscape offers dedicated drop off zones for the South Melbourne Ferrars Street Primary School, due to open in 2018, and more short-term on-street parking for visitors to the precinct,” Cr Voss said.

“It’s less than a year before the new school opens and we are excited about the benefits this project will bring to our growing community.”

The updated plan provides 20 angle parking spaces on the school side of Douglas St for those visiting residents and businesses, as well as a new loading zone on Meaden St for business drop-offs.

Enhanced drop off zones for the new school have been included on Kerr, Ferrars and Whiteman streets providing 26 time-limited parking spaces, while a new bus zone has also been included on Kerr St.

To provide feedback or for more information, visit haveyoursay.portphillip.vic.gov.au by March 10. Community feedback will be reviewed before council considers a report to endorse the design on April 5.
