No decision on serviced apartment case

04 Mar 2013

The Building Appeals Board (BAB) is yet to return a decision on the serviced apartment case it heard last year.

The case, involving the City of Melbourne, Watergate Owners Corporation and Docklands Executive Apartments, was heard by the BAB in Docklands last year, with the final submissions made on November 14.

The case centres on whether serviced apartments should be allowed to operate in the Watergate apartment tower.

City of Melbourne issued building orders against 30 serviced apartment owners in 2011 ordering them to comply with building regulations applicable to a hotel or to cease trading.

Yezz Pty Ltd, which operated as Grand Harbour Accommodation and Paul Salter, who operates Docklands executive apartments, appealed the building orders at the BAB.

In November Yezz Pty Ltd withdrew from the case and ceased operations at Watergate.

The outcome of the case is likely to affect the operation of serviced apartments in residential buildings throughout Docklands and the rest of Australia.

A BAB spokesperson was unable to confirm when a decision would be likely.
