City of Port Phillip – alcohol restrictions


The City of Port Phillip is trying to get resident feedback on their alcohol ban.  Here is a link to the survey.  Below is some background from the City of PP


The St Kilda foreshore is enjoyed by residents and is a popular tourist destination. Our foreshore and public spaces are easily accessible and attractive locations for people to congregate in large numbers and consume alcohol.

At the 7 February 2018 Council Meeting, Council resolved to trial an extension of the alcohol and glass restrictions along the St Kilda foreshore precinct until after the Easter long weekend, 3 April 2018. This trial extension looks to balance the ability of people to enjoy our foreshore and City with public safety, to achieve our vision of a ‘beautiful, liveable, caring, inviting, bold, real’

Tree update

20180204_095106 (2)

I have previously told you that our trees would likely go today – we have a very short reprieve.  The current plan is to only remove some trees from the Albert Rd Reserve today.

Tomorrow they are likely to divert cars opposite us heading out of town into the service lane.  They can then trim the ones behind the concrete barrier – trimming the side near the tram tracks.

Then on Friday they will move cars back into the centre section and remove our trees – the 3 behind the concrete barrier

Well that’s what I think will happen and is weather/wind dependent

Getting a tram to/from The Botanica


As you all must know by now, we no longer have a tram stop on our doorstep.  We are fairly evenly between the Domain tramstop and Toorak Rd one.

It is about to get MUCH harder to get to the Domain tram stop.  The footpath next to the park will be closed today or tomorrow and you’ll be routed through the park

Use the Toorak Rd tram stop (called Stop 22) for travel in either direction
