FRANKSTON MARINA PROPOSAL: Frankston City Councilís proposal to fill 21 hectares of Port Phillipís seabed in front of Oliverís Hill cliff for a marina is a Dubai-style approach.

The Legislative Council voted against a Greens motion to disallow the Planning Ministerís Amendment C50 rezoning of the seabed at Oliverís Hill for a marina, but Frankston City Council blames the poor response to its call for tenders for its marina proposal on the poor state of the economy.

A 2008 Government Priority Development Report supports a 21 hectare (52 acre) artificial harbour and built-up area in the sea near Oliverís Hill cliff at Frankston in Dubai style. See Frankston Beach Association Incís position and its response.

Combined Frankston Residents Group Press Statement seeks full disclosure by Frankston Council and a democratic say on its Oliverís Hill marina plan

Marina touted as ďFrankston Safe HarbourĒ on the Frankston City Council website. The Web page states ďone of the greatest assets Frankston City has to offer is its natural beachscapeĒ. It then cynically describes how 21 ha of nearby sea is proposed to be filled in. Note the vacuous spin of "Safe Harbour". Of course FCC will not admit it would really be an unsafe harbour, but read here why it would be.

The very large area of natural seascape that would be replaced with filling, covered with buildings and boating facilities, is between, and is an integral part of, the landscape and ambience of these dunes and cliffs.
