September’s Montague Community Forum at the Golden Fleece Hotel produced another interesting discussion about how the redevelopment of Montague is shaping up.

Initiated by the Montague Community Alliance and sponsored by the Southbank Local News, some 50 local residents, business owners and council officers attended the Q&A style forum on September 20.

City of Port Phillip (CoPP) Mayor Bernadene Voss, Gateway Ward councillors Marcus Peal and Ogy Simic and CoPP CEO Peter Smith provided their visions for Montague before the forum was opened to questions from the audience.

As the community awaits the release of the all-important next stage of the State Government’s Fishermans Bend Strategic Framework, the forum was designed to continue the discussions around local planning.

Affordable housing, public transport, sustainable development, open space and community facilities and place making were just some of the topics canvassed, as the locals were given a direct chance to quiz their councillors.

For a comprehensive overview of the forum, read Montague Community Alliance convener Trisha Avery’s analysis of the evening in her October column.
