About the

Community Association

Representing residents, property owners & businesses in Battery Point

The Association is led by an elected committee who meet monthly in the Battery Point Community Hall. Committee members are elected at the Annual General Meeting each year.

Planning Principles

  • Principle 1

    Battery Point is a nationally significant historic precinct whose heritage should be protected from inappropriate uses and development

  • Principle 2

    The ongoing use of the Inner Residential zoned area of the suburb should prioritise residential amenity and be principally for residential purposes

  • Principle 3

    Future residential development should be compatible with the existing urban and historic development pattern

  • Principle 4

    Non-residential uses should not be permitted and new developments should be limited to existing commercial or mixed-use zones

  • Principle 5

    Proposed uses and development should not intensify existing traffic and parking congestion within Battery Point
