Draft Asset Management Policy and Strategy on Exhibition

Posted by antonellaceli on January 22, 2015 at 12:25 AM

Have Your Say on the Mornington Peninsula Shire Asset Management Policy and Asset Management Strategy currently on public exhibition.

What Assets are we talking about?

The Council is responsible for public owned Infrastructure assets such as roads, bridges, pathways, as well as Cultural assets like public libraries and recreational facilities that enhance the quality of life in the local community and provide much needed program and services to those living in our region.

Currently the Shire's infrastructure assets have a current replacement cost of more than $1.6 billion dollars. .

Why do we need a Policy?

The Shire is responsible for and must plan for the acquisition, operation, maintenance, monitoring, renewal, upgrade, expansion and in some cases, disposal.of publicly owned assets because of this an Asset Management Policy and Strategyis needed to outline best practice in management of these assets to provide the best outcomes for the community and the region.

Point Nepean National Park and Quarantine Station Masterplan

Posted by antonellaceli on April 25, 2013 at 6:15 AM

Point Nepean National Park and Quarantine Station Masterplan.

 

"The Victorian Government has released the Point Nepean National Park Master Plan and announced its intention to run a commercial Expression of Interest to seek private sector investment in development of the historic Quarantine Station precinct."

 

In years gone by it was mooted that a National Centre for Coasts and Climate educational facility development headed up by a University would compliment the use of the Quarantine Station Precinct.

 

The Masterplan seeks to place strict parameters around the kind of EOI's that would be accepted for consideration in the development of Point Nepean.

 

A copy of the Masterplan and answers about the EOI process can be found at this link:
