    BCNA Submission on the Funding of Infrastructure in Fishermans Bend

    Since our earlier item about this, the BCNA decided to comment on three items in the draft consultation plan released by the Victorian Government. The BCNA’s comments covered:
    • The importance of the Victorian Government honouring announced commitments, such as the provision of tram services, if development is to proceed.
    • The Victorian Government should underwrite the fund (holding development contribution levies) so that infrastructure can be provided in a timely way.
    • Some establishment costs, such as land for public transport and flood and drainage work, should be funded by the Victorian Government rather than through development contribution levies.

    The BCNA meets regularly with Nina Taylor, the State Member of Parliament for Albert Park, to discuss community concerns. We will be discussing BCNA’s the three concerns (see above) at our next meeting with her.
