Kinitted gifts for Nepal A YOUNG girl who suggested her family help raise money for victims of the Nepalese earthquake is thrilled with the result. Isabelle Stanley, 7, was “overwhelmed” by the $175 earned selling knitted scarves, mittens and beanies at Saturday’s Hastings Community Art and Craft Market. Her mum, Kerry Sorenson, had earlier knitted herself and Isabelle matching scarves when her daughter, who attends Crib Point Primary School, said to her: “Let’s knit some more, sell them, and send the money to Nepal.” The idea escalated and with help from family, friends, and knitters from local churches, about 70 scarves of all colours, shapes and sizes were sold. The money will go to Nepal via TEARS Australia. Ms Sorenson said Isabelle was thrilled with the amount raised. “She said ‘wow’; she was overwhelmed. Tomorrow (Tuesday) she is doing a presentation at school to tell the class about the project. She was stoked.” Any remaining scarves, mittens and beanies will be sold at Langwarrin craft market on Saturday 11 July, at the school, or through Ms Sorenson on 0424 375 006. Isabelle’s grandmother June Coster has another reason to be proud: “When my daughter [Kerry] gave me some scarves my four-year-old grandson, Zayne, asked me why I had them. I explained about the earthquakes and how people had nowhere to live and not much food; that they had lost everything, and he said he had some money in his money box at home and to send it to them so they can buy some food. “I am a grandmother who is very proud of her grandchildren.” Stephen Taylor

Aged care knock back Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A 223-UNIT aged care centre proposed for Graf Rd, Somerville, has been knocked back by Mornington Peninsula Shire’s planning department. The applicant, CBG Architects, has 60 days to appeal the decision to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tri-

bunal. CBG Architects is understood to be acting on behalf of SomerCare. Aged care provider SomerCare already has what it terms “the first resort in aged care on the Mornington Peninsula” – a 130-bed facility, nearby in Graf Rd, Somerville. The new, larger aged care centre was planned for a 3.2 hectare site fronting Graf and Eramosa West roads, on the western edge of the town’s commer-

cial activity centre. Plans describe 117 one bedroom-and-study units and 106 two-bedroom units and parking for 279 cars. Eleven separate buildings were to be built over two and three storeys. The centrepiece was the heritagelisted homestead Seaton Carew, refurbished and extended to include a hairdresser and florist, administration and medical facilities and a community area.

The development was to be built in five stages “in line with market demand”, according to CBG Architects, who said the property “could be defined as a strategic redevelopment site as defined in the shire planning scheme”. The proposal “represents an appropriate development outcome for the site” supported by Clause 16 of the state planning policy framework.

Shire statutory planning manager Niall Sheehy wrote to objectors and the applicant on Friday to say officers had refused the application. “Having assessed the planning application against the requirements of the planning scheme and having considered the concerns of objectors, council resolved to refuse the planning application on a number of grounds,” he said.
