Spring Street, MELBOURNE

Challenge

The corporate health provider was seeking a change of use from Melbourne City Council for an office building on Spring Street for a medical clinic for 22 GP consultation suites and a dedicated treatment room with no patient car parking provided on site and privacy screening applied to the entire ground floor windows of the building.  

Solution

The team successfully negotiated a full dispensation of the car parking requirements for a medical use on the basis that the site is well served by public transport and the majority of patients would likely visit the centre during their working day in the city and not be relying on a car to make the visit. Melbourne city council have a explicit signage policy that discourages any ground floor windows from being obstructed however, based on the sensitive use, the CS team was able to convince council that privacy was necessary and successfully negotiated with council for approval of a translucent privacy screen to be applied to the ground floor windows to protect the privacy of the patients inside the clinic.
