Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is hosting a drop-in session on Thursday 27 February for the boating community and other interested stakeholders to learn more about the plans to upgrade the Hastings boating facility.
The Victorian State Government committed to funding upgrades at six priority locations across the state, including Hastings, as part of its Better Boating initiatives.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is managing the project and has developed designs for an improved boating facility. The Shire is currently seeking the necessary approvals to progress this project.
As part of this process, the Shire is hosting a drop-in session on Thursday 27 February 2020 for the boating and fishing community and other stakeholders to find out more about the proposed upgrade.
The drop-in session will take place at Mornington Peninsula Shire Office (21 Marine Parade, Hastings) between 4pm and 6pm on Thursday 27 February.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Sam Hearn said: “The upgrade will improve access for boaters to Western Port by providing an all-tide boating facility. We welcome anyone interested in learning more about this essential upgrade to come along and have your questions answered”.
Cerberus Ward Councillor Kate Roper said: “The Hastings Boat Ramp is one of the busiest ramps on the Mornington Peninsula and in Victoria. This upgrade is needed to service the growing numbers of people who want to go boating in Western Port. So, I’d encourage boat ramp users and the community to drop-in and find out more.”
