Reporting Crime

Police have asked for residents to call 000 for all Police related matters in our community and not to call the local police station (unless you are specifically in contact with a representative).  000 calls are all logged and provide police with statistics which enables them to allocate resources where required on an on-going basis.  Note:  The police will need to prioritise your calls depending on danger to people etc.

Finally the Victorian State election results are in!

Our congratulations go to:

The Honourable Martin Foley (sitting member)  re-won the Albert Park seat for Labor, and the Honourable Sam Hibbins (sitting member)  re-won the  Prahran seat for the Greens.

We look forward to working closely with both members in the coming years, especially on the St Kilda Junction Master Plan – see below for Labor’s commitment to a study.

St Kilda Junction is one of the most complex convergence of roads in Port Phillip (Queens Road, St Kilda Road, Punt Road, Fitzroy Street and Barkly Street). It serves as a gateway to Fitzroy Street, St Kilda Beach and the foreshore, and remains a key intersection for vehicular, bicycle, walking and public transport movements.  The last five years has seen increased high scale residential development south of St Kilda Junction ranging from 8 to 26 storeys. The increased growth has impacted on the local amenity and changes are required to protect and enhance the liveability of new residents.

To read more about JAAG’s involvement in the development of a masterplan see Recent Posts on the right hand side of this web page.

St Kilda Junction PTV Substation – update October 2018.

The final design for the exterior covering of the PTV substation at St Kilda Junction is very disappointing in terms of what is to be delivered compared to the original concept agreed (see picture below).  JAAG will continue to work with relevant parties in an attempt to achieve a better outcome for the community.

St Kilda Junction Substation - Architectural Options

The ‘Future Forest’ concept design was chosen by the community over the ‘Lighthouse’ and ‘Timeline’ options proposed.  Much of the feedback indicated people liked that the ‘Future Forest’ option blended in to the local area and with other vegetation and provided the best outcome in preventing grafitti.

PTV anticipate that works on the substation exterior will commence DECEMBER 2018.  Below is the link to Transport Vic’s project page on the St Kilda Junction substation site.
