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 communities needs.

In the lead up to the 2018 state and 2019 federal elections, Council worked with the local community and key industry organisations for essential funding required to deliver priority projects that will meet the needs of our growing region. The projects include:

  • Electrification of the rail line from Frankston to Hastings (stage one Frankston to Langwarrin then stage two Langwarrin to Hastings)
  • Building a regional tennis facility meeting the needs of relocating Frankston Tennis Club*
  • Transforming Jubilee Park Indoor Stadium into a regional multi-sport facility
  • Continued revitalisation of Frankston's city centre
  • A safe boat refuge and new facility for Frankston Volunteer Coast Guard

*The regional tennis facility project initially included the relocation of Bayside Gymnastics Club from their temporary facilities at a local primary school hall. Unfortunately extensive advocacy efforts were unsuccessful in securing the required funding, therefore the urgent need to provide tennis facilities was prioritised. Council continues to work with Bayside Gymnastics Club on an alternative permanent home to continue growth in participation.

Car Parking

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.
