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.

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.

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.
