EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Membership of Frankston Design Review Panel

The new look Frankston City is fast capturing its status of the eastern capital of Port Phillip. New residents, businesses and investors are increasingly drawn to the enviable quality of life, strategic location and outstanding opportunities offered by this thriving “regional capital on the bay”.

The waterfront has been transformed and the City Centre is being revitalised through urban design, streetscape works, the establishment of new art and entertainment precincts and major commercial developments that reflect the attractiveness of Frankston to the private sector. Designated as a ‘Transit City” further improvements are planned around its transport network to create a sustainable and connected community with easy access to jobs, facilities and services.

To enhance this growth and change Frankston City Council is dedicated to attaining the best possible built environment. To ensure this outcome we will be convening a new Design Review Panel consisting of 5 members, one of which will be a local resident and we invite Expressions of Interest from:
• architects,
• landscape architects,
• urban designers,
• academics,
• specialists in the areas of sustainability, public art, public transport, traffic,
planning and related disciplines
to apply for membership.

The role will involve providing expert design advice and assessment as part of a Panel for the following types of projects:
• Significant Town Planning Applications – at both the pre and post
application stages
• Major Council designed proposals and strategies
• Other matters deemed suitable by Council

Expressions of Interest will be received by the undersigned in sealed envelopes, endorsed “Expression of Interest for membership of the Frankston Design Review Panel”, until 2.00pm on Thursday 7 June, 2007.

The Expression of Interest documents may be obtained from the Frankston City Council, Urban Strategy Department, Civic Centre, Davey Street, Frankston, by phoning 9784 1063 or can be downloaded from Councils website www.frankston.vic.gov.au
