  • Protect the environment including birdlife.
  • The creek should not be widened.
  • Signs needed to alert visitors to the connection of Longbeach trail.

Kingston Residents Association & Kingston Save Our Streets Forum

A very successful meeting on Housing Strategy & Neighbourhood Character Study. The meeting was attended by 60 zoomers, including Mayor Steve Staikos, Crs Chris Hill, Georgina Oxley and Jonathan Guttman – General Manager of Kingston Planning & Development. MBCL member spoke to the Pompies landing development.
How do we strengthen the Local Heritage Overlay? Cr Chris Hill had practically answered this – by getting a Victorian Heritage overlay which protected the Mentone Hotel from demolition. Maybe we need to do this for the Mordialloc Village overlay ?

Mentone Life Saving Club Redevelopment

Brad Lewis, Foreshore Coordinator, has sent newer plans, after two cancelled meetings, to discuss loss of indigenous trees around the carpark, the closeness of the new building and disabled access to the cliff face and the large proposed grass area. The disabled path has become a road to access the front of the Life Saving Club and carves into the narrow cliff. Brad assured that the fragile cliff face will be reinforced. There will be more casuarinas, she oaks, teatrees, and native grasses planted.
All the vegetation around the Mordialloc pier toilets has been removed. Brad has again assured that native plants (indigenous?) will be planted in garden beds around the building. Requested that the removed trees be replaced in the playground area ( which is going to be redeveloped in the future).
