The battle against short-stay apartments in residential buildings is set to go state-wide with the launch of a new association next month.
To be known as “We Live Here”, the association will be formed at a meeting at the Medibank building in Bourke St, Docklands on Monday, December 14.
We Live Here is the brainchild of the Watergate tower owners’ corporation (OC), which has been leading the fight against short-stays with various legal actions since 2012.
The meeting will be held from 5.30 (for registration) on level 12 at 720 Bourke St, Docklands. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
OC chair Barbara Francis said the idea stemmed from feedback received from residents and OCs across Melbourne keen to join the fight.
She said a new incorporated association would be formed to represent the interests of strata-titled residents on a range of matters.
“Although this campaign has originated from Watergate’s ongoing efforts to regulate short-stay aparments, the main purpose is to encourage other like-minded residents to join together to have our voice heard,” she said.
