In August 2016, Council rejected the proposed development at 149 Hansworth Street. Council had sought community feedback on the proposal and received 79 objections and one petition with 35 signatories.

A developer has appealed to VCAT after Council refused a proposal for residential towers (ranging from 6-10 storeys) in Hansworth Street, Mulgrave.

The VCAT hearing has been scheduled to take place over three days, starting on 26 June 2017. The hearing was not completed during this time and VCAT has scheduled a Day 4 hearing for August 2017 to continue to hear this case.
