Lighthouse Reserve

On 29 April the Borough Council approved the following regarding Option 2 (Landscape Improvements etc.) for the Point Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve:

 That Council

  1. Endorse the Concept Plan as included in thePoint Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve Masterplan Addendum – Financial Assessment of Option 2 (Appendix 1) and confirm Option 2 as the preferred option for future use of the reserve;
  2. Authorise the CEO to identify and apply for funding from either the State Government or Federal Government for the implementation of Option 2;
  3. Determine Council’s position in relation to the introduction of paid car parking at Point Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve and Rip View car parks.

Following a motion from Cr. Bob Merriman, the Council also approved that there would be a review in a Council Assembly of the following question asked by the President of PLCA at the start of the Council meeting:

Does the council now intend to take this recommendation (as approved above) to the community and seek input as to the best way to progress the Master Plan including the possible establishment of a representative “Point Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve “friends” Group with the brief to monitor implementation of the Master Plan, liaise with the community on a regular basis and ensure that the integrity of the site and community wishes are honoured?
