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.

Our members are committed to community. We are a not for profit association supported by member fees and co-ordinated by a volunteer committee elected each year at an Annual General Meeting.  We welcome new ideas and invite you to join us.

NEWS FLASH:   Bellarine Distinctive Areas and Landscapes.  The State Labor Government is delivering permanent protections to Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula communities to safeguard their precious coastlines from over-development and urban sprawl.  A series of community forums will be undertaken and the feedback will underpin planning policy, giving the community a say over development controls and settlement boundaries.   A Portralington community consultation will be held on Saturday, 22 June from 11am-1pm at Parks Hall, Portarlington.  The session has been organised by DELWP (Dept. of Environment, Land, Water and Planning).   Further consultation sessions will be held across the Bellarine region.  To see the list of venues/dates and to indicate whether you would like to attend any session, visit this site  :https://engage.vic.gov.au/distinctive-areas-and-landscapes-program/bellarine-peninsula .  The PCA’s Planning subcommittee is developing recommendations for the PCA.
