Planning Minister Matthew Guy today announced that a planning permit would be granted for a new Dromana Bay Life Saving Club building at Point Nepean Road, Dromana.

“This is great news for the Dromana community.” Mr. Guy said.

The Minister acted upon a request from the life saving club to call in the application from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) to ensure a decision was expedited.

“The Planning Department considered the views of all parties and I have subsequently recommended to the Governor-in-Council that a planning permit be granted. The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council will now issue that permit.” Mr. Guy said.

 

The life saving club is using two shipping containers for storage and operational space and is seeking to build a more permanent home to continue to serve the community and cater for members.

“This decision will provide for a new development in time for the coming summer months.” Mr. Guy said.

The Planning Department undertook a thorough examination of the proposal and found that the proposed new club house is in keeping with existing buildings on the shoreline.

Member for Nepean Martin Dixon said the approval of the new life saving club was a fantastic result for Dromana.

“Many in the community will be thrilled that the life saving club will finally be able to build a new home. The Mornington Peninsula has some of the best beaches in the world and it’s important that our life savers have decent facilities to work from when they’re protecting swimmers.” Mr. Dixon said.
