Community talks on ‘missing ink’ bay trail


PLANS for proposed path improvements on the section of Port Phillip Bay Trail dubbed the “missing link” – at Anthony’s Nose, Dromana – will be discussed on Saturday (28 May).

External funding is required to complete the works.

The shire says it will continue to advocate for government funding to complete what it says is an important regional asset.

Officers say they are pressing ahead with community consultation, design concepts and necessary coastal approvals to bring the project to a “shovel-ready state to make the proposal more attractive for external funding support”.

A community drop-in session will be held 10am-noon, Saturday 28 May, at the Old Shire Offices, Pt Nepean Rd, Dromana.

Everyone is welcome to drop by to look over the proposed plans and provide feedback.

Seawinds Ward councillors Graham Pittock, Antonella Celi and David Gibb say they are committed to working with the community on suitable proposals for the missing links of the bay trail.

They say they are continuing to advocate for funding to have this “important project of local and regional significance completed”.

The concept plans will also be made available on the shire website following the community “drop in” session.
