School wins appeal on Oakbank land PADUA College, Mt Eliza has been given the go ahead to develop a four hectare parcel of land in Oakbank Road. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal decision overturns a Mornington Peninsula Shire decision to block the bid which had been supported by council officers. The school described the proposed use of the land, about 850 metres east of Nepean Highway, as an extension to the college campus. Under its masterplan the school wants about 300 car parking spaces mainly off the current campus to allow for future growth: It says that in 2017 its enrolment in years 7-12 was about 1580 students; by 2022 it expects to have 2100. Oakbank Road is a no-through road and all school traffic must arrive and leave to the west. The masterplan provides for an additional off-road queueing space for parents waiting to collect students in the afternoon peak. VCAT ruled that the “real and substantial purpose of the land is not a car park” and that other

teaching and student pastoral activities were proposed for the land. In efforts to compromise with the council and objectors, the college agreed not to use that part of the land north of the parking area and the sheds (about half of the land area) for “school activities”. It said no VCAL or VET classes would be conducted on the land, including woodworking and boat building, nor end-of-year functions or events. It agreed to limit to 25 the number of students on the land at any one time in the exhibition space or spiritual retreat centre; that they would always be under staff supervision and never there outside school hours. Parking areas and circular driveway gates will be locked and not used outside school hours, but staff cars can be parked there after school. Extra provisions discussed include additional screen planting along boundaries and swale drainage for the crushed rock surfaced circular driveway in the parking area. Stephen Taylor

Car parking at station changes ALTERNATIVE car parking spaces will be made available to commuters while Frankston train station is redeveloped. Works will see 120 spaces at the Beach Street end of the station car park unavailable from last Sunday (10 March) until late this year. The Old Law Courts car park, at the corner of Playne and Young streets, will have 120 free allday parking spaces and Frankston Council will make 50 free all-day spaces at the Mechanic’s Institute car park available. The Level Crossing Removal Authority will

lease 50 parking spaces at Bayside Shopping Centre for construction workers and LXRA staff. LXRA has also leased the 50-space private car park at 122-124 Young Street for construction site use. A temporary train station will be opened while the main train station is demolished and rebuilt to a new design. After the new station is complete late next year, the Old Law Courts will revert to paid all-day and short-term parking, and 122-124 Young Street will revert to paid short-term parking.
