Reporting Crime

Police have asked for residents to call 000 for 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.  However, the Police have now created a separate number for non urgent calls.  You can call the Police Assistance Line on 131 444 (or go online) to report property related crime such as theft or property damage or to make general police enquiries. You should still call Triple Zero (000) if the incident is life-threatening, needs immediate police attendance, a crime is happening now or an offender is (or may be) still in the area.

Change in use of 72 Wellington Street, St Kilda

72 Wellington St 2015In the last few months 72 Wellington Street has been registered as a rooming house.  At the same time there has been an increase in complaints about noise and loss of amenity and in the number of syringes found in the surrounding streets and laneways.  Local police are in regular attendance.What can you do?   If you have a complaint about noise or have found a syringe contact Port Phillip Council ASSIST on 9209 6777 or email to  Assist@portphillip.vic.gov.au with details about the time and place – location is especially important for syringe collection and disposal.  If you have been subject to, or witness, anti-social behaviour call Police on 000 so that the call can be logged and responded to appropriately.

St Kilda Junction Substation Facade complete?

JAAG is very disappointed (feeling deceived) by the newly completed St Kilda substation facade which does little to camouflage the substation and in JAAG’s view does not match the Future Forest design (image below) that PTV committed to deliver.

St Kilda Junction Substation - Architectural Options

Safety issues have also become apparent to Yarra Trams and PTV which are proving difficult to address – JAAG raised these issues with all state government agencies over 2 years ago along with several other issues and concerns about the location and design of the substation, proposing several alternative locations.  JAAG has again written to the Minister for Transport Infrastructure, as well as the local members, requesting a new location for the substation where it does not jeopardise pedestrian, cyclist and motorists safety and where it is not a blight at a major gateway location. Check back for updates.

St Kilda Junction Masterplan – update March 2019

IMG_3024

The Department of Transport have been working with City of Port Phillip to co-ordinate a detailed project plan for a joint study for the Junction. The study intends to firstly assess the urban design and amenity issues affecting all transport users, residents and workers throughout the area.  The study will also collect background data to inform a set of strategic directions and principles for the future movement and place functions for the Junction.  The Inner Metropolitan Partnership Assembly meetings will continue through 2019 and JAAG will continue to contribute to these forums.

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.
