130 Bay St, Port Melbourne

13 October 2017

Demolition of the grey facaded weatherboard cottage at 130 Bay St was underway today. Although a permit was first issued for its demolition in 2010, it appears that it is still the subject of a live planning application 838/2010/C by the Port Phillip Council.

130 Bay St - October 2017
In 2010, a permit was granted for the demolition and re-development of this property for a four level building. 

In 2014, a new application was submitted for a five storey building with basement carparking and dwellings on levels 1-4 and use of the ground floor as a shop. 

It was appealed to VCAT which approved the development on 6 November 2015.

130 Bay St -  January 2011
21 February 2012

A few points drawn from the City of Port Phillip Statutory Planning Committee report of 21 February:

  • the site contains a single storey house that was previously consolidated from two single storey Victorian houses with a Spanish Mission style facade
  • the alterations to the building are considerable .. and have eroded its heritage integrity. 
  • it is considered that this section of Bay St is no longer consistent due to the loss of adjacent heritage buildings to the south.
  • given the lack of significance of this significantly modified building and the lack of heritage integrity and consistency ...  the heritage policy could be put aside to allow the building to be demolished.
