    Ferries’ Departure Opens up Opportunities to Revamp Waterfront Place

    The Tasmanian Government’s decision to relocate the Spirit of Tasmania ferries to Geelong (see earlier post) provides an outstanding opportunity for the Victorian Government to redevelop the Waterfront Place precinct.

    For some time the BCNA has advocated for a planned strategic development of the precinct.

    With the two Sprit of Tasmania vessels ceasing to use Station Pier in 2022, the BCNA continues to urge the Victorian Government to recognise the opportunity to make the area a truly liveable gateway to Melbourne and a landmark for all.

    The BCNA continues to meet our local MP, the Hon. Martin Foley MP to discuss precinct redevelopment. Mr. Foley has complemented the BCNA on its advocacy. The BCNA believes early action by the Government would also help the recovery of the State’s tourism sector from the crippling impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
