108 Power Street Decision

A permit has been granted by VCAT for the development to proceed on the land at 108 Power Street. With Boroondara council withdrawing almost all their objections at the 11th hour, it was highly unlikely that the decision would go any other way.

The Member Ian Potts did reject many of the proponents arguments (for example using the VATMI site as a precedent), however it looks as though the West Hawthorn Urban Design Framework has not only failed to prevent an inappropriate development in the area, but has been used as the justification for it.
