The Borough has put boundary change firmly back on its agenda, but has warned it will not happen unless residents show their support behind the plan.
“We have been looking at ways to improve this situation for the affected residents for many years and the time has come to take a good look at the current boundary arrangements,” Cr Cameron said.
“Community connectedness is a consistent concern raised by the residents of Point Lonsdale and I encourage you to make the time to attend this important public forum.”
Some 800 Point Lonsdale residents currently live within the City of Greater Geelong. They attend local schools, use local medical services and are members of community and sporting groups within Queensclifffe, yet the CoGG benefits from the rate base.
Previous attempts, including a plebiscite in 2012, have to date failed to garner the community support needed to persuade the government to shift the current boundary from Fellows Road to Heggies Lane.
Minister Hutchins and Bellarine MP Lisa Neville will conduct the public forum from 3.30pm on Wednesday January 13, at the Point Lonsdale Hall.
