Mornington Peninsula Shire invites local residents to attend a community meeting regarding The Pillars on Thursday 1 November in Mornington.

At the meeting you will be able to hear about the implementation measures that will be taken over the 2018/19 summer period to reduce the impacts to residents caused by increased visitation to the site.

An overview of the Council decisions made throughout September and October will also be provided.  

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne welcomes all nearby residents to the community meeting.

“Council continues to work hard to protect the safety of people and the amenity of the area for our residents. We look forward to meeting with the community to hear your concerns and to discuss the management of issues relating to usage of the site,” said Councillor Payne.

Briars Ward Councillor Bev Colomb said “we encourage everyone to continue engaging with the Shire to support our efforts to reduce anti-social behaviour at The Pillars”.

Briars Ward Councillor Sam Hearn said “Council is aware of issues local residents face regarding The Pillars, especially during the warmer months. This will be a great opportunity to talk about how we are working towards solving these issues”.

Briars Ward Councillor Rosie Clark said “every step of the way this project has been shaped by the community voicing their concerns about inappropriate behaviour at The Pillars. We look forward to continuing our efforts with the community and relevant stakeholders to push for the area to be made safer and be more respected”.

Council continues to work closely with all stakeholders, including state government agencies, Victoria Police, CFA and VicRoads.
