Why should Phillip Island's Aquatic Centre be built now?
When does PIACFI estimate that the Phillip Island Aquatic Centre
could be built?
The first feasibility study on the need for an aquatic centre on Phillip
Island was conducted back in July 1996 by consultants for Bass Coast Shire and
paid for by the Victorian Government. Its recommendation was to build the centre
then. But that study never saw the light of day, as it was shredded by Council
officers. Given that since that date the PIACFI has been asked on many occasion
to conduct more feasibility studies - all studies recommending the same outcome: to
build the Centre - yet Council has refused to act.
Late 2018 is the 150th anniversary of the settlement of Phillip Island (its
Sesquicentenary); that would be a great time to unveil a fully operational aquatic
centre. But raising the funds to build the centre, from the public, from State and
Federal government grants, and from corporate and philanthropic donors,
augmented by some Council funds, is the key; 2018 is a feasible timeline!
