Shoreham Triangle Working Bee

The plan is to do some weeding and in-fill planting.  It is interesting to reflect that the Triangle prior to 2009 had 200 pine trees on the site.  In a joint effort with the Mornington Peninsula Shire (MPS), clearing, planting and weeding the area has achieved a very positive result for the Shoreham community.

To assist, MPS staff will make a presentation on plant and weed identification.  It’s a family event for local residents to discover the diversity of the plants we have in this area and perhaps take home some ideas for their own gardens.

NB:  Please do not park in the CFA area (including the car park there).   Parking will be available along Byrnes Road or Cliff Road.

Tea  and coffee will be available (BYO cakes,  bickies or healthy option). 

Please dress for the work and the weather:  we recommend long sleeved shirts, long trousers, gloves, hats and work boots.  You might also like to consider kneelers or knee pads.

Tools:  Some tools will be provided but please bring your own to make ours go further or to suit your working preferences.  Useful tools are weeding hoes, weed pullers, weed bins/buckets and garden gloves.

Chapel S223 Hearing at Council

On the 11th July, the Mornington Peninsula Shire (MPS) published a Notice of Intention to Sell Land on which the Buxton Chapel sits. The Shoreham Community Association (SCA) and the Flinders District Historical Society (FDHS), and anyone else who may wish to protest the chapel’s sale, had until the 11th August to make submissions to show why the sale should not go ahead.

MPS Council has notified objectors that it will be convening a Committee to consider submissions and to hear from those who have requested to do so verbally. This is called a Section 223 Committee.

Under Section 223 of the Local Government Act, persons can be invited to make a verbal submission to Council (or a Council committee) concerning various types of decisions such as its Intention to Sell Land - as in the case of Shoreham’s open-air chapel.

The Chapel item has been listed for a Section 223 Committee Meeting on Monday 23rd October commencing at 6:30PM at the Council Chambers - 90 Besgrove Street, Rosebud. The meeting is open to the public should you wish to attend, but only those who have indicated they wish to be heard verbally are invited to speak.   

Should you have made a submission:

  • Because there are other items on the agenda and due to the large number of submissions made in relation to the Chapel, each person will be limited to speak for 3 minutes only.   Council suggests that, should you wish to be heard verbally, you should bring a written/typed copy to read from and to provide this to the committee clerk for minuting purposes.
  • Should you be intending to make a verbal submission and wish to coordinate it with the Shoreham Community Association and others (in order to make the most of your 3 minutes of fame), please contact our Secretary, Kathryn Shain by e-mail ( shorehamcommunity@gmail.com ) or telephone on 03 5989 8179.

For further information on the Chapel, please visit: http://shoreham.vic.au/strategic-planning/#BuxtonChapel .

Easter Egg Discovery Tour ...

... at the Shoreham Triangle at the rear of the Shoreham CFA in Byrnes Rd.

There will be an Easter Egg hunt so that families can come to come and explore the area and see the results of 8 years' work on revegetation. Please be aware that children will have to be closely supervised as there is no fence on either the west side of triangle which fronts onto the very busy Frankston - Flinders Road, or on the Byrnes Road boundary. 

The Triangle was cleared of over 100 pine trees by Mornington Peninsula Shire in 2009 and replanted with native shrubs, trees and grasses by local community volunteers. The Shire has recently used the Green Army to construct a path adjoining the water feature that meanders through the area and this may be where the Easter Bunny runs. The area attracts echidnas, koalas and numerous native birds - so bring a rug to sit and look.
The event will not take long so you can get back home for lunch. Tea & coffee will be available.

Entry is off Byrnes Rd so we suggest you park cars in Byrnes Rd to keep the CFA area clear in case there is a call out.
