Vale Port People Inc

The BCNA notes with sadness the official winding-up of Port People Inc, a long-standing local partner organisation. Port People has made a significant contribution to the local area in many ways, most notably the protection of Garden City Reserve and the establishment of the children’s play area in Maritime Cove.

Port People was established in 2005 in response to a proposal to sell a small area towards Tucker Street of Garden City Reserve to a not-for-profit South Port Community Residential Home. This was to establish a residential home. The proposal was withdrawn after opposition by Port People and nearby residents. More recently, Rowan Groves, the President of Port People, has represented community views about the development of Fishermans Bend at local forums, to the City of Port Phillip and the Victorian Government.

We thank the former presidents of Port People who have worked very collaboratively with BCNA, namely Ari Pappas, Helen Kuchel and Rowan Groves. The BCNA also thanks Port People for passing all assets of the organisation to the BCNA.
