Triangle Development, St Kilda

The Victorian State Ombudsman's report (June 2010) into probity matters concerning a contentious development in St Kilda, including relationships between Councillors and developers, reported that there was no evidence of any wrongdoing (paragraph 67). This corroborated the findings of the Victorian Administrative Appeals Tribunal that the contentious development complied with the planning law of the state of Victoria.
