Members of the Association are interested in a wide range of topics including the urban development of Ocean Grove, transport and traffic issues, and environmental concerns.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or post on our Facebook page Ocean Grove Community Association.

****  Date now set for 23 May 6pm,  Venue to be advised shortly ****

 

Ocean Grove Principal Pedestrian Network (PPN). Unfortunately this has not progressed as Council had earlier scheduled due to, in the main, staff changes at the Council.  Our latest advice from Council is that they are currently working on design checks, cost estimates and cost apportionment for the Ocean Grove PPN which will enable the next stage of community consultation to be undertaken.  The construction of the footpath remains subject to community agreement and the City’s budget process, as such a construction timeline cannot as yet be provided by Council for these stages. We followed up and asked for clarification on the project schedule and Council have said “whilst any date will be subject to change based on the appointment of the new coordinator and their allocated priorities, it is hoped that the consultation can commence by October 2018 with a view to the community response advising any budget submission necessary for the 2019/20 financial year”.

 

Traffic Matters.  We meet about every quarter with VicRoads and COGG representatives on a range of traffic matters.

 

Grubb Road:  On the Grubb Road duplication VicRoads plan to complete a Planning Study by 31 December this year however they are will engage with the Community in about two month time to review the current 80kph speed limit.  We have offered to help where we can in that consultation process.

 

Grubb Road Pedestrian AccessShell Road to the Nature Reserve – we are seeking to energise a Community driven project to refurbish the existing walking path built by the Rotary Club of Ocean Grove many years ago but which is now overgrown. As Grubb Road is a VicRoads road they have agreed to a site meeting with us soon to discuss the implications and road safety requirements of any community work.  This follows on from successful discussions with Parks Victoria.  We will keep you informed on what transpires.

 

Thacker Street – what are the Council plans for Thacker Street? – we have asked but unfortunately with no response at this time but we will continue to push for information.

 

Topics of Interest. We are considering scheduling a guest speaker, about quarterly, to speak on a topic of interest to the Community.  Let us know by email or our Facebook page if you have a particular topic of interest and/or you can recommended a speaker.

 

Meetings: You are always welcome at the Association monthly meetings which are on the first Wednesday of each month at 7pm at the Ocean Grove Bowls Club – come and tell us your views or concerns.
