Portarlington Community Association

The Portarlington Community Association (PCA) is a group of community members that advocates and champions local issues on behalf of the residents of Portarlington.  We work together to provide a forum for local residents to share concerns, interests and visions for our town. When necessary the PCA represents the community in discussions with all levels of government and community.

We encourage, foster and sometimes coordinate community activities to achieve our goals.  We are a not for profit association supported by member fees and co-ordinated by a volunteer committee elected each year.  We welcome new ideas and invite you to join us.

Next Meeting:  12 February 2020

Redevelopment of BCH Community Health Centre in Portarlington

Bellarine Distinctive Area and Landscape

On 31st October the State Government declared the Bellarine a ‘Distinctive Area and Landscape’ under the Planning and Environment Act 1987.  The next step is public consultation in drawing up a Statement of Planning Policy, which will hopefully ensure that the crucial features of the Bellarine and its townships are protected effectively.  For more information follow this link:  https://engage.vic.gov.au/distinctive-areas-and-landscapes-program

Many will be interested in the summary of the first round of consultation between May and July this year at https://s3.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/hdp.au.prod.app.vic-engage.files/5715/7189/3842/Summary_-_Bellarine_Peninsula_Engagement.pdf
