11 February 2011
It is a week since we experienced the massive downpour of 4 February which led to flooding in various parts of Port Melbourne.
One of the areas affected was Lalor St, Port Melbourne – that small segment of street that runs parallel to Bay St between Bridge and Liardet St.
Lalor St is covered by a Special Building Overlay in the City of Port Phillip Planning Scheme.
As several place and street names in Port Melbourne suggest, water has been a presence in our area from the earliest days: Pool St, Spring St, Lagoon Reserve.
