Public Notice: Proposals to restrict vehicle access

08 September 2017, 05:00 PM

The Mornington Peninsula Shire is proposing to restrict vehicle access on the following sections of road: 

  • Buxton Lane between 22 Buxton Lane and Blake Street, Shoreham;
  • Burton Street between Buckley Street and 20 Burton Street, Bittern;
  • Wright Street at the Morrah Street end, Hastings; and
  • Hodgins Road between Bittern Reservoir and Derril Road, Tuerong.

In order to restrict vehicles on the above sections of road, it is proposed to install lockable removable barriers. This treatment will still allow for pedestrian and emergency vehicle access and will be done in accordance with the provisions of the Local Government Act 1989, Section 207, Schedule 11, Clause 9.

Council has resolved to commence a six-week public exhibition period in relation to the proposals and we are now seeking your feedback.

Plans of the proposals can be viewed at the Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings Municipal Offices and on the Shire’s Website www.mornpen.vic.gov.au under: Have your say.

  • Received by Friday 8 September 2017.

A Council or Committee of Council meeting to hear submissions will be scheduled if one or more persons request to be heard in support of their submission. These persons will be notified of the meeting once confirmed.
