    Council News affecting Beacon Cove

    The BCNA regularly meets Gateway Ward Councillors to discuss issues of mutual interest. At our recent meeting on 26 November, The Mayor, Bernadene Voss and Councillor Marcus Pearl spoke about the following issues:
    • $50,000 grant from the Victorian Planning Authority to help the city to develop a precinct plan - no action has been taken at this initial stage.
    • Floating fish/produce market on the water behind Waterfront Place restaurants – A trial will be conducted between next April and May.
    • Cruise crew hub at Mr Hobson – Council believes that this service is operating satisfactorily.
    • Pick up, drop off zones in Waterfront Place – As a test location, four parking bays outside the Generations restaurant will be used as a pick-up/drop off point for commercial vehicles when cruise ships are berthed.
    • Public toilet behind the old train platform – new directional signs will be fixed. The toilets, leased by the Council, are being cleaned six times a day.
    The BCNA expects to meet Ward Councillors next February to discuss the details about some of these projects.
