land clearing MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire will seek restoration of vegetation and rectification of earthworks after a Tyabb landowner was convicted of carrying out earthworks and clearing native vegetation without a planning permit. The landowners and their contractor were fined $29,000 with costs of $18,000 in Frankston Magistrates Court late last year. In mid-2017, the council’s planning compliance officers began investigating allegations that unapproved works were being carried out at the property. They saw that a significant amount of native vegetation had been cleared. The mayor Cr David Gill said the council worked hard to investigate illegal building works to protect the amenity of the peninsula. “We view the destruction of native vegetation without planning approval as a serious offence,” he said. “Landowners are encouraged to check with the council’s planning department before they start any earthworks or remove any vegetation to determine whether planning permission is required.” The planning department number is 5950 1010.

Timely signs For more information mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay

SIGNS to help motorists estimate how long it will take to reach the southern Mornington Peninsula are being installed along Point Nepean Road and Browns Road. The signs by Mornington Peninsula Shire and VicRoads estimate travel times for the coastal and inland routes. Beacons will detect road users with Bluetooth-

enabled devices to calculate actual travel times. Signs will then display the times of each route so drivers can choose their best option. “[The signs] provide us with valuable data, such as traffic congestion levels and driver behaviour, which helps us strategically plan for future transport solutions on the southern peninsula,” the mayor Cr David Gill said. The signs will also be on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at the southbound service centre, Baxter, informing drivers of travel times to Dromana and Rosebud; on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, Arthurs Seat Road, offering information on travel times along the two route options to the southern peninsula; and, on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway extension, Rosebud, offering a second travel time update along the two routes.

Not so perfect cocktail

A 44-YEAR-old Frankston man has been charged after allegedly committing a random attack armed with molotov cocktails in Seaford, 17 January. The man allegedly broke into a garage on Rosland Street at around 10am, and used items found inside to construct three molotov cocktails, which are as flammable projectiles. The man then allegedly tossed the cocktails over the fence onto another property. Police said they caught the man after he jumped the fence to the rear of the property, and was spotted watching the fire through a hole in the fence. Police said the fire was extinguished by the occupant of the house, a young mother.
