Council submission to CYP

I am particularly pleased to see they are pushing

  • Good screening of chillers
  • Suitably advanced trees in front of us
  • Safe building driveway access
  • Public toilet in station that is free
  • Upgrade to Bowen Cres toilet
  • Two lanes of traffic each way in front of us, not a return to 3 lanes

It will be presented for approval at the Council meeting on October 20.

Register for CYP briefing – OR ELSE!!

A little while back I told you to ‘keep the date’ for a CYP briefing on the final station design.

This briefing has been organised just for our building – so please take the opportunity to find out the details of things like

  • Parking out the front
  • Long term car park access
  • The chiller plants
  • Trees
  • …and much more

I’ve had a preview of what is to come and they have listened to us, it is definitely better than earlier versions, but it is all a bit of a compromise.

Please make the effort to register and attend

The latest and now protracted lockdown may have caught out your friends, family or colleagues who need to find somewhere to live but are stuck  and are wary of serviced apartment complexes. A safe, furnished, and comfortable renovated 2 Brm and 2 Bthrm front facing unit in Botanica may be the solution. Our unit came up for re-leasing just as Lockdown 5 commenced. We are offering it for rent at $620pw recognising the current economic climate. Please ring Sandra on 0427888258 to discuss.

AGM – The Botanica

You should shortly receive details of our upcoming AGM.

It will be held at

Giro d’Italia Restaurant at 401 St Kilda Rd

Tuesday August 31


Please come along and I would recommend that you stay on for dinner to support our local restaurant.

We will also have the meeting on zoom (details on the info pack you will receive)

If lockdowns prevent a face to face meeting then we will proceed with the AGM as ‘Zoom only’ at the same date/time.
