Beacon Cove Neighbourhood Character GuidelinesBeacon Cove VIC Australia
SJB Urban, with inputs from SJB Planning, prepared the Beacon Cove Neighbourhood Character Guidelines for the City of Port Phillip.
This project involved developing detailed and comprehensive guidelines to manage all future development in the established Beacon Cove Estate, Port Melbourne. The guidance replaced a range of covenants on titles, and accompanied new statutory planning controls, with the aim of maintaining the unique and valued character of this area.
This project involved rigorous, street-by-street analysis of existing conditions and in-depth research into the original design principles, for each sub-precinct within the estate.
Local residents groups were closely involved in the process, and provided strong support for the work, whose rigour reflected their commitment to Beacon Cove’s character. The final document is very detailed but highly accessible to local residents.
