We were extremely pleased that the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has put their support behind our efforts to question the Crib Point gas import terminal’s viability and impact on the environment.
During the September 11th meeting, the council heard the motion moved by Cr. Gill and seconded by Cr. Roper, resulting in the following offical recommendation, as entered in the Shire’s records and provided to us for public distribution:
That Mornington Peninsula Shire Council (MPSC) shares community concerns regarding the proposed importation of gas at Crib Point and calls for a State Government run, transparent consultation process that includes examining environmental effects and problems associated with the proposed 60 kilometre pipeline through agricultural land.

It is difficult to understand how remediation work on the Crib Point jetty could be underway when AGL and APA still have not made their application to Government for the proposed LNG import facility and pipeline to Pakenham.
On a glorious sunny afternoon on July 1 2018 many hundreds of people came down to the Hastings foreshore to add their numbers to the growing opposition against the two ill-considered industrial proposals currently threatening the Bay.
