Response by Cr Rohan Leppert:

I agree with the concerns re Harbour Esplanade.

In June 2015, when Council considered the Master Plan, I moved an alternative motion to that recommended by our officers.

The effect of this motion, which was agreed to by Council, was to require that the plans for the heritage sheds come back to Committee rather than just be considered by officers under delegation.

This is to make sure that the public - especially the local Docklands community - have the opportunity to see the plans, have their say and ensure that Council is approving plans consistent with their expectations. There is certainly a mood among Councillors to get this right and ensure that the heritage sheds do not dominate, and that views and free public access are protected. So I am confident that this alternative resolution will help to ensure that we debate the right outcomes.
