    Fishermans Bend Community Forum Update

    The City of Port Phillip (CoPP) convenes the Fishermans Bend Community Forum.  Its purpose is to provide a regular opportunity for two way dialogue between the community and Council regarding the development of Fishermans Bend.  The Forum uses the expertise of the community and the feedback informs Council in its decision making.   It comprises representatives of community organisations, residents groups, local businesses and Councillors.  BCNA is represented.

    At the June meeting, Environment Protection Authority (EPA) representatives explained that they have commenced groundwater studies of the area. Using information on the history of Fishermans Bend they are sampling across the area in public spaces only. Information from the studies will be used in the planning process and provided to developers.

    Council has asked the Community Forum for its vision for this area which will contain the new primary school. This will be discussed at future meetings of the Forum. The vision will inform the types of infrastructure required near the school.  A Ministerial Advisory Committee is being selected to advise the Minister on all aspects of planning for Fishermans Bend. This committee is expected to be finalised around the end of July.
