There has been a crime surge in recent months. If you see anyone acting in a suspicious way or had something stolen, please call 000 and ask for a Police squad car to investigate the incident as this will assist local police in compiling crime statistics in our area.

St Kilda Junction PTV Substation

72% of respondents preferred Option 1 – ‘Future Forest’. The ‘Lighthouse’ and ‘Timeline’ options received 13% and 15% respectively.  Much of the feedback indicated people liked that the preferred option (pictured below) blended in to the local area and with other vegetation and provided the best outcome in preventing grafitti.

Chipton Park (formerly Crimea Reserve)

New concept designs being prepared

CrimeaParkThe playground at Chipton Park in Crimea Street ON THE CORNER OF CHARNWOOD RD has been earmarked for a makeover with new and improved playground equipment and facilities.  You can check out the status via the Have Your Say website survey.

Concept designs are expected to be  ready for community comment in February 2018. JAAG will keep you informed.

The park was established in the 1960’s at a time when very few children/infants lived in the area. Around 2000 the park was upgraded with new children’s playground equipment and gardens renovated with new plantings. With the sustained increase in recent years of young families with children/infants coming to live close by and many more people now choosing to live in the precinct, this pocket park is failing to meet their needs as park users, is way off creating a positive impact on the streetscape.

Chipton Park is named after the house originally on the site, where Harry Browse Gibbs lived. Mr Gibbs was a former Mayor if St Kilda (1902) as well as a well-known architect who designed many of the iconic buildings in St Kilda and surrounds. Descendants of Mr Gibbs requested the park name be changed from Crimea Reserve to Chipton Park and this was approved in February 2017.
