Annual General Meeting - Motion | Sandringham Train Line Closure

Dear Member,

Annual General Meeting - Motion

On Thursday 16 May 2019, at the Annual General Meeting (AGM), the majority of members (41 to 1) voted in favour of the motion:

"that the PMI requests that the government revokes its incorporation under the Prahran Mechanics' Institutes Act 1899 and becomes incorporated under the Associations Incorporations Reform Act 2012".

The discussion by the members in regards to the above was fruitful and constructive.

For those who were unable to attend the AGM, you can find a copy of the discussion paper for the proposal here.

The Minister for Local Government will be officially notified in writing by PMI later this week.

There will be a regular segment in the newsletter and on our website, keeping everyone informed of the progress.  There will also be numerous opportunities for you to participate and provide feedback at all stages of the process.

Sandringham Train Line Closure - Tuesday 21 May to Sunday 9 June 2019

Please be advised that major construction works are taking place on the Sandringham train line. An increased demand for tram services and delays due to traffic congestion is expected during this time.

Increased demand is expected on Route 3/3a, 5, 6, 16, 58, 64, 67 and 78 trams.

We would also like to remind you that construction on the Cato Square project continues which is impacting parking in the area. Visit for more details in relation to parking in the area. The Chapel Street Precinct group have also developed an online parking map which you can visit at
