In Portarlington VIC on “Construction of a Dwelling...” at 129A Tower Road, Portarlington, VIC:

I prepare the fortnightly Portarlington Community Email Tree and have listed planning documents I know about here
Sorry, I think you need to copy and paste.
We have an Intensive Housing Development Area that allows for three-story houses close to the town centre even though our Port Structure Plan from City of Greater Geelong says dwellings should be suitable for our predominately aged population. The GRZ1 zone covering Arlington Rise doesn't have a height limit. Some folk seem to believe the flat earth exists because they use Google Maps. Even though Port is on a hill, the Mayor at the time acknowledged the entry to Arlington Rise was in the wrong spot - the top of a hill. We are a seaside town, the character of our town is being lost sadly. Keeping the seaside town character would make Port so attractive - look at Queenscliff that draws so many visitors to marvel in it's historic built structure.
