    City of Port Phillip Commits to Anti-Hoon Measures

    Since our last update, the City of Port Phillip (Council) met on 15th September and considered a staff report on anti hoon measures. The report recommended continued work by Council officers, police, and the Department of Transport to prevent anti-social behaviour; the reduction of speed limits, physical barriers and the review of existing signs and parking restrictions in certain streets; and that Council officers advocate for the development and use of noise camera technology by police and the State Department of Transport and to report back to Council. These measures were agreed. Surprisingly, there was no recommendation that the City of Port Phillip acquire a mobile CCTV camera but continue to rely on borrowing the City of Stonnington’s unit.

    The BCNA contacted Gateway Ward Councillors Marcus Pearl, Heather Cunsolo, and Peter Martin ahead of the meeting and asked that they support Council acquiring a unit. Thanks to their efforts, Council agreed that a detailed report should come to Council in October for the purchase or hire of a mobile CCTV unit.

    The BCNA thanks Councillors Pearl, Cunsolo and Martin for their support on this issue.
