Victorian Greens member for Prahran, Sam Hibbins, condemns plans for helipad in South Yarra.

The helipad would sit atop the Capitol Grand, which is currently under construction.

Mr Hibbins says the costs to the community greatly outweigh any benefit for the owners of the six penthouses who would be able to use it.

“This is a classic example of a planning decision that would benefit the very few at great cost to the local community, especially residents who live within close proximity.

“The number of objections shows there is already significant community opposition, and I share their concerns, especially about noise levels.

“South Yarra does not need a helipad to ferry penthouse owners to the airport, it needs an upgraded South Yarra station with connection to the Melbourne Metro rail project.”

Mr Hibbins is available for further comment
