OCs band together

14 May 2015

Southbank Residents’ Group (SRG) president Tony Penna hosted the inaugural Southbank Owners’ Corporation (OC) meeting at the Boyd Community Hub on Monday, May 4.

While there are currently 11 Southbank OCs signed as SRG members, OC chairs from only five Southbank apartment towers attended the inaugural meeting.

The meeting was attended by Peter Renner (Freshwater Place), Arji Fry (The Summit), David Jones (Yarra Condos), Steve Shoup (Gallery Tower) and David Gluck (Southside Tower).

The evening also featured a guest presentation from Strata Community Australia’s Victorian general manager Robert Beck, who provided a detailed insight into all aspects of policy and legislation relating to apartment living.

Mr Penna launched the initiative in an effort to establish a regular opportunity for Southbank OCs to network, raise concerns and exchange ideas.

Members at the inaugural meeting agreed that the meetings would be staged bi-monthly, host a different guest speaker and consist of a “loose and informal” agenda.

Some of the main issues the meeting will aim to address include crime, local and residential initiatives and council matters affecting Southbank.

The group’s long-term objective is to form as a registered community group, which would lobby the City of Melbourne and State Government on issues affecting Southbank.

The next meeting will be held at 6pm on Monday, July 6 at the Boyd Community Hub.
