    Council Supports Anti-hoon Measures

    At its meeting on 6 April, the City of Port Phillip considered the introduction of anti hoon Local Laws as well as other measures to stop hooning in Port Phillip. This was in response to petitions Council received from the BCNA and the Hon. Josh Burns, Federal Member for Macnamara.

    The BCNA has advocated for the introduction of anti hoon Local Laws as introduced in other municipalities. Recently, Victoria Police formally requested that the City of Port Phillip develop a hooning Local Law.

    Council agreed to consider the following:

    • A hooning Local Law as part of Council’s Local Law 2023 Review;
    • The purchase of a mobile CCTV trailer;
    • Installing a temporary raised pedestrian crossing at the existing pedestrian crossing at Waterfront Place as a 12-month trial; and
    • Investigating options with Victoria Police to collaborate on joint enforcement of metered parking in the Station Pier carpark.

    The BCNA welcomes these measures and thank Gateway Ward Councillors – Mayor Marcus Pearl, Peter Martin and Heather Cunsolo for their support and work on this issue over many months.

    It is important to continue to report hoon activity, as this helps police to target ‘hot spots.’  Victoria Police has asked residents to report information involving hoon driving to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the web site. When a hoon event is occurring, always call Triple Zero (000). All information provided to police is assessed and investigated.
