Hawthorn Bowling Club

I received this via Miriam who is concerned about plans in regard to the Hawthorn Bowling Club. I tried searching the Boroondara planning registry but without success.

Council has plans to demolish the Hawthorn Bowling Club building in St James Park and replace it with a modern facility. Council is discussing this with the Club, which is considering its options. I believe the current clubhouse has heritage and aesthetic value and could be renovated (with the assigned funds) in order to preserve the current street scape at the east end of St James Park. I further believe this landscape contributes to the amenity of the whole West Hawthorn community and Council should have consulted us before making pre-emptive decisions about this site.
