French Island ferry under review
Continued from page 1.
Peter went on to explain
that the outdated jetty at
Tankerton is in need of an
upgrade and extension,
and that a new design
requires special consid-
eration due to the jetty's
"In the old days there
used to be three landing
points, which gave more
options, but over time this
has been reduced to one.
The jetty at Tankerton is
west facing which means
that it is subject to prevail-
ing weather conditions.
"It is all a matter of pas-
senger safety. This is the
reason why the ferry often
gets cancelled -- it's too
unsafe for passengers to
get on and off. If we had
an improved and safer
landing area (or new jetty)
that this would increase
the reliability of this ser-
vice," Peter said.
Their plight has since
been taken up by both
Federal and State Gov-
tives, Greg Hunt MP for
Flinders and Neil Burgess
Member for Hastings, in
lobbying the state govern-
ment to heed their cause.
The Victorian Govern-
ment has now committed
to consulting closely with
the French Island Com-
munity Association in the
long term development
plans for this vital service.
In the meantime the
people of French Island
are waiting expectantly for
the release of the consul-
tants' report which they
hope will be open to dis-
cussion within the coming
"We look forward to the
final report and to see the
dations which will give us
a more reliable and work-
able ferry service," Peter
The inter-island ferry pulls into the Cowes jetty on one of its daily trips between Stony Point and Cowes
via French Island. The French Island community is advocating for a more regular and updated service.
Apologies to the Bass Coast Shire
A PIECE in the Advertiser headed
"Like watching concrete dry" (November
18) poked fun at the Bass Coast Shire
for paying a security guard to stand over
concrete for 12 hours until it dried.
In fact, we have been informed, the se-
curity guard was employed by the con-
tractor carrying out the work, and not
the shire, for a very good reason.
The contractor, who did not wish to be
named, said that wet concrete in public
places is invariably vandalised, at great
cost to himself, and when this happens,
the work has to be redone.
The contractor is charged with hand-
ing over the work completed in perfect
condition, as part of the contract agreed
Unfortunately, he said, a security
guard is required in a position as pub-
lic as Thompson Avenue, to prevent
concrete being vandalised before it has
"We have an obligation to protect our
work. The cost was borne by us and not
by the shire," he said.
The Advertiser apologies to the Bass
Coast Shire for suggesting ratepayer's
money could be better spent.
We obviously got this wrong!

and Community Centre.
BASS Coast Shire Council is inviting
the community to comment on plans for
the redevelopment of the Cowes Cultur-
al and Community Centre.
A marquee will be set up in the Cowes
Town Square in Thompson Avenue in
early December for the project team to
talk about the concept designs.
The Cultural and Community Centre
was identified as a priority project in the
Cowes Activity Centre Plan 2015, which
was developed with extensive commu-
Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Jordan Crug-
nale, said the planned redevelopment
needs to align with contemporary cul-
tural and community centre practices.
"This precinct is currently quite tired,
somewhat compartmentalised and all
the functions and users are disconnect-
ed from each other," Cr Crugnale said.
"This is where centralisation will work
well to create that buzz and hive of activ-
ity that you want out of a multipurpose
"With an amazing set of thinkers,
creatives and designers on the island,
please comment on this concept design
to ensure we are thinking laterally and
spatially with purpose and function in
mind for the users of today and tomor-
