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 four major projects:
- Extending and duplicating the electric rail line from Frankston towards the Mornington Peninsula
- 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
- A new home for the Frankston Coast Guard and a safe breakwater at Olivers Hill
These are just a few of Council’s advocacy priorities for Frankston City and the boarder south east Victoria region.
