HAPPY New Year and welcome to 2017!
It’s already proving to be a big year for Bass
Coast, and we’re only one week in!
I had the honour of meeting with Nippers at
the Cape Woolamai Beach Surf Life Saving Club
this past week as they, along with hundreds of
Nippers at Cape Paterson and Inverloch, took
part in their 2016/17 program.
The beach is such a big part of our everyday
lives here, and I love how the Nippers program
teaches children how to enjoy the beach in a
safe environment, look out for others and im-
portant lifesaving skills, such as CPR.
It also encourages them to be active and make
new friends – what’s not to love?
Throughout the month of January, you may
notice the Council logo out and about even
more than normal.
We’ll be popping up at a variety of events
around the Shire and holding community en-
gagement sessions in a number of towns as we
embark on a monumental community conver-
sation to ‘Help shape a better Bass Coast’.
We believe that our community must be active
participants and collaborators in the develop-
ment of our future plan.
This is a fantastic opportunity for all of us to
shape a better future for Bass Coast and the
ideas and comments we receive will help us
develop our direction over the next four years.
It’s only early days for our ‘Help shape a bet-
ter Bass Coast’ campaign, and we’ve already
had an overwhelming, positive response from
people putting their ideas forward.
We know how passionate you all are about
your own slice of paradise within Bass Coast
and this is the time to show it!
So please do not miss our face-to-face engage-
ment sessions and pop-ups, get on board with
our social media exchanges, complete our on-
line survey and come and have a coffee with a
councillor so we can hear your thoughts.

COUNCILLORS at the Bass Coast Shire De-
cember meeting have deferred consideration of
an application to subdivide land in Dover Street
Sunderland Bay, until the February meeting of
The proposed subdivision into two allotments
each in excess of 2000 square metres, is within
the town boundary, and is zoned appropriately
However, council officers had recommended
that the application be refused, on the grounds
that the Bass Coast Planning Scheme discour-
ages increased housing densities in towns with-
out the appropriate infrastructure or services
to support such development.
Officers assessed that a whole of catchment
drainage strategy is required in the area prior
to further development.
The application attracted five objections, on
the grounds that current land supply is ad-
equate, and a further allotment is unnecessary;
there are no footpaths in Dover St; increase
traffic will result; and inadequate road infra-
structure and increased traffic will result in
dust and noise.
The application will now go to the February
meeting of council.
An application for a six lot subdivision of land
at Jill Street in Sunderland Bay was also listed
for decision on the December council agenda.
It was withdrawn however, prior to the meet-
That application was also recommended for
refusal, by council planning officers.
Playground fence petition
A PETITION requesting the Bass Coast Coun-
cil to build a fence around the children’s play-
ground in the Grantville Memorial Park, was
presented at the December council meeting.
The playground is located next to the Bass
Highway, and signatories are concerned for the
safety of its young users.
While councillors appeared sympathetic to
the request, in accordance with council proce-
dures, the petition will lay on the table until the
Westernport ward councillor Clare Le Serve
moved that in the intervening period, a com-
munity meeting be held to engage the broader
community on their preference in relation to
fencing the playground area.
“This warrants going back to the communi-
ty and making sure that this fits in with what
the community wants and needs,” Cr Le Serve
“We need to cover all of our bases. We will
have a better idea this way.”
