About us

St Kilda Junction Area | Aerial Photography | 8 May 2012

The Junction Area Action Group known widely as JAAG, represents more than 250 concerned residents and business owners in the St Kilda Junction precinct bounded by St Kilda Road, Alma Road, Chapel Street and Dandenong Road. ***JAAG’s area has been expanded to include the precinct bounded by Fitzroy St, Princes St and Barkly St, St Kilda *** 

The boundaries are highlighted in the above photo (courtesy of Andrew Hobbs).

The precinct comprises an eclectic mix of heritage homes, low rise social housing, two to four storey apartments as well as some office and commercial buildings, St Michael’s Grammar school and two synagogues.

Mission Statement

St Kilda’s JAAG strives to preserve our highly sought after sense of community values and protect our much loved local heritage buildings and streetscapes by addressing local issues (ranging from inappropriate developments, parking issues and traffic congestion to residents’ safety and streetscape improvements).

JAAG achieves these outcomes by lobbying local and state government and other bodies and challenging planning applications to protect and bring about positive decisions that enhance the livability of our ‘prized” precinct.

Regular news letters are published and group gatherings are held from time to time, to help keep the JAAG members informed and actively involved with local issues.
