Housekeeping Notices

  • As mentioned in last week’s newsletter our petition to Boroondara Council requesting the removal of the two parking spots from directly out the front of the property is available for signing. Please urge all visitors and service providers to also sign it – the more signatures we can gather hopefully the stronger our case will be. The petition is located on the reception desk.
  • A list of the Tuesday evening films for the month of July has been distributed for you all. Much appreciation to John and Margaret for all their continual efforts to ensure there is a diverse and interesting choice of films each month.
  • Please be aware that on Tuesday July 6 new residents will be moving into Apartment 2.04 in the west wing. Please be cautious using the lifts as they will be lined with protector curtains while furniture and other goods are being transported.
  • The latest edition of the BASScare magazine for July/August 2021 will be distributed this week. It is full of events and activities to ensure that the BASScare community stays active, entertained and connected over the winter months.

Canterbury Precinct Feasibility Works for Commuter Car Parks
In 2019 the Australian Government committed to delivering Commuter Car Parks across 30 sites in Melbourne to encourage greater use of public transport and alleviate parking pressures on the adjoining residential streets and congested major roads.
Within the City of Boroondara one of the nominated suburbs for a commuter car park is Canterbury.
This decision could affect us all and it is essential to be provided with all information as it is supplied, to this end please find attached to this week’s newsletter the first communication we have received from the Boroondara Council.
In the meantime, you can learn more about commuter car parks projects being undertaken in Boorondara at
