VCAT affirmed the City of Port Phillip's decision to refuse a permit for the demolition of the house at 22 Spring St and the construction of a new two storey house with a basement and roof terrace.

There was no argument about the demolition and replacement of the heritage building but the amenity impacts of the roof terraces and balconies of the proposed development were considered unacceptable.

The member noted that 'three storey built form is not characteristic of the area, and particularly not evident from nearby'.

The VCAT hearing scheduled for October has been postponed to February 2018.

July 2017

Planning application 890/2015 (lodged in August 2015) for 22 Spring St East for the demolition of the existing dwelling and construction of a two storey dwelling with basement level and rooftop terrace has been refused by the City of Port Phillip.

The grounds for refusal included 'the failure to provide a contextual response to the surrounding built form'.

The application has been appealed to VCAT and will be heard on 13 October.
