Triangle Vision

The final draft vision St Kilda Triangle 2012 Framework was released by Port Phillip council in June.  It comes in the form of a 116 page booklet and makes a very interesting read.  Have you read it yet?  If not you can get a physical copy from council or read it online at or

When releasing the final draft Mayor, Cr Rachel Powning said that the triangle site is a place which is passionately valued not only by the local community and the Council but by Melbourne as a whole, and Council’s Vision is built on this passion.

“Our Vision is of a place which builds on the local character of St Kilda. It will be a public place of modest proportions, but of design excellence. It will be welcoming to all, a beautiful place, a place to gather, to be entertained and to enjoy St Kilda’s seaside culture.”  She said.

In discussion with St Kilda News the Mayor outlined the challenges for the incoming council to secure funding for the vision.  Possible funding avenues identified include State and Federal Government, a Council rates levy, a Palais tickets levy, philanthropic opportunities and corporate contributions.

She emphasised that the project is not short term but to be implemented over the longer term, with work beginning in 3-5 years.

Unlike the proposal of the previous council, it is not the intention of the new vision to generate income that would support the restoration of the Palais.  Longer term lease arrangements for the Palais will be considered.

At this stage St Kilda News will not analyse the final draft from any particular perspective but rather provide a platform for community members to express their view.  Please email your thoughts and opinions to for publication online and in the August print edition of SKN.  You can also post on our facebook ( to generate a real time discussion!

The draft Vision has been released for community consultation until 20 July 2012 and council will be holding the following drop-in information sessions:

9am – 12 pm Saturday 7 July  Veg Out Farmers’ Market

4pm – 7 pm Thursday 12 July St Kilda Town Hall foyer

We look forward to hearing from you!

    After you first contact a journey school, they will lay released the red carpet for yourself. You will get a tour on the facilities including the classrooms and the airplanes to be used for the in flight training. You will meet wonderful instructors and the end of the tour will most likely include a test flight where you’re free to sit in the pilot’s seat as though you are actually flying that jet. That experience alone could hook you to need to be part of their software. Then they will present you will some colorful brochures, a contract and a class schedule last but not least, a schedule of costs as well as payment options.
