Jetty wrangle ends in agreement A CRUMBLING jetty at Patterson Lakes Plaza will finally be built after the resolution of a funding stoush between the state government and Kingston Council. It was smiles all round last Wednesday (28 June) when Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny, Victorian Ports Minister Luke Donnellan and councillors gathered to officially announce the construction of the $499,000 Patterson Lakes Inner Harbour Jetty. Council has agreed to pay for maintenance of the jetty, estimated at about $10,000 annually, after the project was in danger of being sunk over a dispute
between the government and council over responsibility for ongoing maintenance works. “When it’s completed the new public jetty and boardwalk at Patterson Lakes will be a tremendous community asset,” Ms Kilkenny said in a statement. “It will deliver better and more accessible facilities for boat users and positive social, community and economic outcomes for residents and local traders.” Twelve new berths, including a berth for emergency services vessels including the Water Police and Volunteer Coast Guard, will be built at the plaza.
The $499,000 of taxpayers’ money is part of the state government’s Boating Safety and Facilities program. “Kingston Council is pleased to support the new Inner Harbour Jetty which is a fantastic addition to Patterson Lakes and will help attract new visitors to the area to enjoy the stunning waterways,” Kingston mayor Cr David Eden said. “I thank and congratulate the local residents and businesses who have initiated the campaign for this fantastic new community facility for all to enjoy.” Neil Walker
