Resistance to Domain plan continues

Resistance to Domain plan continues Image

Community concern regarding the Domain Precinct masterplan has continued after the City of Port Phillip adopted a version amended as a result of community pressure.

The G12+ Domain Precinct Residents Group submitted a letter to the council last month listing three “major shortcomings” within the adopted plan.

The letter said the plan failed to consider significant changes that would greatly impact the amenity of the community, including the impact of the Metro Tunnel project and future planned developments.

It also said that despite the amendment to the masterplan adopted on September 18, there had been a failure to address the issues raised by community feedback.

A response from the council stated that the letter summarised similar issues listed in the original submission and “council officers’ responses remain consistent.”

Residents had raised serious concerns regarding a bike link in Park St which would remove on-street car spaces and “negatively impact” the streetscape in a variety of ways.

Among other concerns raised was traffic congestion in a number of areas in the precinct.

Residents stated that negative impacts from the project were misrepresented in the masterplan.

The letter also outlined a list of solutions the group would require before they could support the masterplan.

These include the deletion of the Park St bike link, an assessment of the impact of uncompleted designs of Anzac Station and a comprehensive review of traffic movements.
