    Vibrant Villages in Port Melbourne

    From Bernadene Voss, Sandridge Ward Councillor, City of Port Phillip:

    As part of the Council plan, two key locations in Port Melbourne were identified as needing some extra care and work to help activate. These were Waterfront Place, Beacon Cove & Centre Road shops Garden City.

    Garden City

    Centre Road Shops has had a makeover. A paint and a new sign over the small centre has lifted the look and feel of the place.  Telstra have included free Wi-Fi at the phone box.  The Fisherman's Bend Community Hall is about to undergo a renovation, that will see a small increase in size, for improved kitchen and toilet facilities. We are establishing a village community partnership group which will include Traders and the locals. Feedback has suggested there needs to be a restful place to go to sit and relax, and also greening the area so it feels more welcoming to locals.

    Waterfront Place

    Commenced the Waterfront Welcomers program with SHIP. This popular volunteer program aims to ensure all visitors are welcomed to Port Melbourne.  The Heritage Hub on Finger pier has been renovated which the Port of Melbourne have so generously allowed for Councils use for the Welcomers to base
