The curious case of Fox’s public private beach.

Credit:Illustration: John Shakespeare Fox’s famous Portsea spread, where the billionaire and his wife Paula often host Premier Daniel Andrews and his wife Cath, boasts a rare piece of privately owned beach. With just 4 per cent of the state’s foreshore land in private hands, it’s a prized asset for the truckie. Trouble is, much of the part of Point King Beach owned by the Foxes is also in the Port Phillip Bay conservation zone, meaning the property is not quite as private as the Foxes would like. After former Victorian Liberals leader Matthew Guy signed off on some changes to the planning laws during his time as planning minister in 2014, a permit signed by the Environment Department boss is needed for any significant work or changes of use to the beach land. The Foxes were knocked back by Mornington Shire Council in an attempt in 2018 to have the beach rezoned to residential. Last year they took their case to the Supreme Court, with barrister Stuart Morris QC arguing Guy’s decision amounted to “acquisition by subterfuge” of the beach and seeking damages for the alleged land grab. The court was told by the Foxes’ legal team that the whole purpose of Guy’s amendment to the Victorian planning provisions, which affected conservation zones across the state, was to stop the Foxes from fencing off their beach. But Supreme Court Justice Melinda Richards was having none of that, dismissing the case last week and the claim that the state had wanted to acquire the Foxes’ beach by subterfuge or that Guy’s decisions had been “repugnant” to the Planning Act. The planning controls over the Foxes’ beach don’t look too onerous. An application by the Foxes for a planning permit to lay buffalo grass with an irrigation system on the beach land was granted by the Environment Department last year. That doesn’t mean an appeal is out of the question though. Advertisement Bar brawl Sarah Henderson has gone to war with a leading West Australian lawyer over a call for human rights lawyer Julian Burnside to be stripped of his Queen’s Counsel status. The outspoken Victorian senator ruffled feathers in legal circles last month when she called on the state’s bar council and legal services commissioner to review Burnside’s title over a tweet in which he compared Israel’s stance towards Palestine to the German treatment of Jews during the Holocaust. “There is an expectation that senior counsel will at all times conduct themselves with integrity … Burnside has dramatically failed this test,” she wrote to bar council president Christopher Blanden. Blanden responded that the bar council didn’t have jurisdiction over Queen’s Counsel titles. Burnside – for his part – has since apologised for the comments. WA Bar Association president Martin Cuerden felt strongly enough about this matter to write to the senator accusing her of obstructing freedom of speech. ”Your conduct in reporting Mr Burnside to the Victorian Bar and calling for him to be ‘stripped’ of certain privileges is a matter of grave concern, as it represents an attack on freedom of speech,” he said. On Sunday, Henderson returned fire. In a letter obtained by CBD, she accused Cuerden of failing to condemn the comparison in Mr Burnside’s tweet while overlooking Henderson’s right to express her own views. “Your letter to me is so intemperate, and your defence of Mr Burnside’s conduct is so poorly judged, that I cannot possibly believe that your position as president of the WA Bar Association is tenable,” she wrote. ”It is appalling that nowhere in your letter have you acknowledged this fact or condemned Mr Burnside’s [tweet].” Hely not for turning Stonnington councillor Alex Lew is no stranger to political seek-and-destroy missions. Back in his Melbourne University Liberal Club days in the mid-noughties, Lew championed the idea of Australian hit squads to track down and take out foreign terrorists. He’s all grown up now but he reckons the political killer instinct is still there, and now he has the mayor of Stonnington, no less, in his sights. Lew is attempting to marshall a majority of Stonnington’s nine councillors to declare no-confidence in mayor Kate Hely, when they all get together on Monday night for their fortnightly closed-doors briefing. Lew’s list of grievances against Hely is lengthy but his central gripe is that the mayor, who is officially independent, acts a little too much like a Green for Lew’s liking, and he says she would make Stonnington look more like the City of Yarra if she had her way. Lew’s push against the mayor is an unusual move, even by local government standards. It’s unclear if the former Young Liberal can muster a majority against Hely. Only one of the councillors contacted by CBD on Sunday expressed a view, with Lew’s fellow Liberal Marcia Griffin convinced that Hely should go. Even if they are in the majority, Hely’s critics are powerless under the Local Government Act to force her out, with Lew hoping instead to render the mayor’s position untenable. But Hely told CBD on Sunday that she is going nowhere. “I won’t be standing down regardless of the histrionics that one or two councillors want to introduce,” she said. Save
