Portsea Village Group

Members of your committee represented the NRA on the Portsea Village Landscape Master Plan Committee.  This committee was also represented (amongst others) by the Portsea community, officers of the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, divers, planners and an aborist.  The Master Plan was on exhibition to the community.  Some of the issues were:

Plan to replace the cypress trees be implemented in stages. The avenue of cypress trees to the east of Portsea Village, and also the cypress trees to the west of Back Beach Road, can be retained for another ten years provided they are property maintained.

The proposed eventual replacement tree for the cyrpess is Cedrus Libani, Lebanese Cedar

Improvement of landscape in Newtons Reserve, including new plantings, park furniture, replacement of sleeper walls, paving and lighting.

Increase in parking

Traffic management including installation of predestrian crossing and speed limit reduced to 50 kph

Of continuing concern is the issue of overflowing rubbish bins and the need for a weekly recycling collection during the peak holiday periods.




Sorrento Township Group

Sorrento Township Group maintains a watching brief on developments in Sorrento particularly in Ocean Beach Road.  Group members are also involved in the No Nonsense New Years Eve programme which has proved enormously successfull over the years ensuring a safe family night for all residents of Sorrento and Portsea.  

Input to Shire on maintaining the Camerons Bight Leash Free Dog Beach has ensured that this beach remains available all year round to our 4 legged friends.
