Advocacy Campaign 2017-2021
Council is well positioned to advocate on behalf of the local community to politicians and government departments on projects that will benefit our city and region, while meeting our community needs.
We have worked with the local community and key industry organisations to develop four priority projects that will meet the needs of our growing region.
But projects of this size can’t be funded by Council alone. We need the state and federal governments to contribute and we need the community to show politicians that our community won’t wait any longer for the essential funding we need.
What are we asking for?
Council’s vision for the future of Frankston encompasses regional sporting facilities creating pathways from junior through to elite athletes, improved public transport options across the region and other important projects that will benefit our diverse and growing community.
In the lead up to the state and federal elections, Council is asking all sides of politics to support the following major projects:
- Electrification of the Stony Point rail line from Frankston to Hastings
- Building a new facility that will house gymnastics and tennis at Centenary Park, Langwarrin
- Transforming Jubilee Park Indoor Stadium into a regional multi-sport facility
- Continued revitalisation of Frankston's city centre
These are just a few of Council’s advocacy priorities for Frankston City and the boarder south east metropolitan and Mornington Peninsula regions.

How you can help
We need your help to let politicians from all sides know that these projects mean a lot to our community.
You can do this by:
- Spreading the word on social media using the hashtag #FutureFrankston
- Writing to your local Member of Parliament and candidates expressing what these projects will mean to you (one or many)
Both Victorian and Federal Governments have committed funding towards commuter car parking which will benefit Frankston, Kananook and Seaford Station patrons.
Council is advocating to both levels of government to deliver this project as a priority alongside the electrification of the rail line from Frankston to Langwarrin (stage one) which will free up commuter car parking at Frankston Station and add new commuter car parking at new Leawarra and Langwarrin Stations for local passengers and those from Mornington Peninsula.
Council recently established a car parking working group to investigate supply, demand and pricing of car parking in Frankston's city centre. More information on the working group can be found here.
