The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has listed the application for review relating to the use and development of the land at 131 - 133 Esplanade, Brighton for a 10 day hearing starting on 7 October 2019

At the hearing of this matter, Bayside City Council (as the permit applicant) will seek leave to substitute amended plans.

The proposal relates to the construction of a two storey building (Building) to accommodate the Brighton Lifesaving Club facilities, a multi-purpose space, café and public terrace, the use for a minor sport and recreation facility (lifesaving club), place of assembly (multi-purpose function space) and food and drink premises (café) and the redevelopment of the adjacent car park and associated bicycle facilities and pathways.

As the proposed construction of the Building (and the redevelopment of the adjacent car park and associated bicycle facilities and pathways) is being undertaken by or on behalf of Council in its capacity as the public land manager, it does not require planning permission for its construction under clause 36.02-2 of the Bayside Planning Scheme.  

Planning permission is sought for:

  • the use of the land as a minor sport and recreation facility (lifesaving club), place of assembly (multi-purpose function space) and food and drink premises (café) under clause 36.02-1 of the Bayside Planning Scheme;
  • the removal of native vegetation under clause 42.02-2 and clause 52.17-2;
  • partial demolition and/or works to the heritage bluestone sea wall and demolition and works associated with the construction of the new forecourt, timber decking and rain garden under clause 43.01-1; and
  • alterations to access to a road in a Road Zone, Category 1 under clause 52.29.

If you wish to be joined as a party to the proceeding, you must pay the applicable fee and file a Statement of Grounds with VCAT and serve a copy on Council no later than 4:00pm on 12 September 2019. A copy of the Statement of Grounds form can be downloaded below, or from VCAT's website.

If you have already filed a Statement of Grounds with VCAT and wish to rely on amended grounds, you must file any amended statement with VCAT and serve a copy on Council no later than 4:00pm on 12 September 2019.
