In the interests of keeping members and the wider community informed, the PCA provides documents and links to various Have Your Say opportunities.

  • New Library in Drysdale
    CoGG is requesting feedback from the Drysdale and wider Bellarine community relating to elements they value in the existing service and their views on the future library service to help develop the designs and plans for the new library.  The survey will close on 14th September.  All stakeholders will be able to see the designs and plans later this year.  The Drysdale Library and Community Hub survey is here.

  • Community Survey on Public Art
    The PCA has developed a short questionnaire to canvas community opinion on public art.  Public art is said to express community values, enhance our environment, transform a landscape and heighten our awareness.  Placed in public sites, this art is a form of collective community expression, a sense of ‘who we are’.   We are exploring funding opportunities but, in the meantime, we are keen to garner your thoughts on what art pieces you think would enhance the identity of our town.  Please take the time to complete this survey and return to pca.portarlington@gmail.comThis link will take you to the survey

  • Mobile Phone Issues On The Bellarine
    Stephanie Asher (Mayor and Bellarine Councillor) is seeking feedback on possible mobile phone blackspots on the Bellarine.  CoGG is seeking funding solutions via Senator Sarah Henderson who is keen to address the issue in our region.  If you have an issue, please send an email to on or before Friday, 4th September.  Please be specific about your location and provider (eg.  northern end of Park Street, Optus).
