Irons and Piper Boot Factory - PLN2016/1181
71 to 75 Argyle Street (cnr Fizroy Street), Fitzroy
Major Case at VCAT - Ref. No. P1367/2017
Practice Day Hearing : 28th July 2017
Compulsory Conference : 4th September - Successful Resolution
Final Hearing - Not Required.
Judith and the Argyle Street crew strongly represented the residents.
Mediated settlement was achieved because all parties engaged to agree on an amended plan.
The agreement included a reduction in the number of apartments, the restaurant being replaced with offices, additional bike racks and improved setbacks.
These changes help reduce the amenity impact of the new development, and will hopefully retain the prominence of the heritage boot factory in this historic precinct.
