Election Pledges Affecting Beacon Cove

The BCNA has met four (of the six) candidates standing for Albert Park to discuss our request for a long-term air quality monitoring program at Station Pier; the introduction of low-sulphur marine fuel for ships using Station Pier; and the need for the Victorian Government to reinvest in the Waterfront Place precinct. We are attempting to meet the remaining candidates.

The candidates’ responses are as follows:
  • Martin Foley, Andrew Bond and Tamasin Ramsay support air quality monitoring at Station Pier.  
  • Tamasin Ramsay supports the mandated use of 0.1% sulphur in fuel for all ships using Station Pier. Andrew Bond is prepared to advocate for the lower standard with the Commonwealth Government which has responsibility.
  • Martin Foley and Tamasin Ramsay support reinvestment in the Waterfront Place precinct.  Andrew Bond would be happy to investigate any proposal put forward by Council as Council is the Responsible Authority for all areas other than Station Pier.
To see the detailed responses, just click on the names here: Martin Foley (Labor), Andrew Bond (Liberal)Tamasin Ramsay (Animal Justice).

Ogy Simic, the Greens candidate, had not responded by the deadline for this post. We will post his response when it is received.
