Drinking takes a dive at The Pillars trial from November 2016 to April 2017 after which the council increased powers for police to seize alcohol and fine drinkers. It comes alongside traffic counts in Deakin Drive, Marguerita Av, the Esplanade service road (off Marguerita), Two Bays Crescent and Lempriere Av, as well as an investigation into the installation of pedestrian counters at three main entry points at The Pillars. Other new measures include counts of parked vehicles in surrounding streets; patrols and enforcement of parking infringements; weekly hand litter collections in Marguerita and Deakin avenues; rubbish collection in response to complaints logged with the shire and rapid response to collect litter from residents that collect litter onsite at The Pillars. Solar powered 40km signs will also be reinstalled.

Speak out on party houses MORNINGTON Peninsula residents can have their say on the proposed party house draft local law by Friday. The Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law (Draft) will be on public display until 5pm, Friday 7 December.

PERMANENT bans on alcohol are among a range of tough rules designed to crack down on anti-social behaviour at youth hot-spot The Pillars. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the bans at the popular rock jumping spot and surrounding streets have been introduced in time for the warmer months and the holiday season. “These bans will help prevent the types of illegal behaviour that have become widespread at The Pillars through reducing alcohol-related incidents, improve public safety and amenity and protect the environment and overall community interest,” he said. “Council continues to work hard to protect the safety of people and the amenity of our local residents.” The permanent alcohol ban follows a six-month

appointed agent who must respond immediately to neighbour complaints. It also establishes a code of conduct controlling the numbers of occupants, expectations for their behaviour, and rules over car parking and rubbish disposal. If the draft law is adopted penalties will apply for breaches. The Local Law will be used in conjunction with the Environment Protection Act 1970, Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and the Planning and Environment Act 1987.
