Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — The decision of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) to approve a 26-storey development at St Kilda Junction is an example of the state government's failed approach to planning. The state government rejected interim planning controls over the St Kilda Road south precinct which would have placed a preferred height...

Adjournment: Business of the house

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) (By leave) — I rise to speak briefly on this motion, and we will be joining with the opposition in opposing this motion. This is truly politics and Parliament at its worst. I think the situation of filling this vacancy was described in the media as a farce, and it...

Local Government Amendment Bill 2016

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — Just briefly on this bill, it has obviously been brought forward to avoid the absolute fiasco of having 13 councils dismissed or councillors being excluded from being able to hold that position.

Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — I spoke at the model United Nations (UN) conference at Wesley College attended by year 9 students. The theme for the day was 'Refugees — Rights and Risks'.
