Promote Frankston’s rare and threatened flora and fauna as assets for the community to value, protect and contribute to their recovery.

Manage parks and reserves supporting rare and threatened species to protect and enhance their populations.

Critically assess development proposals, capital works plans and maintenance operations which may potentially impact on key habitat for threatened species or impact on habitat connectivity with a view to achieving the best possible outcomes for these species.

Continue to identify and map habitat for threatened species through on-going surveys.

Advocate for Frankston’s future growth, land use, land zoning and urban design to be sympathetic to existing natural areas and habitat corridors.

More resources and more staff are needed for the Foreshore Reserves. These reserves contain remnants of vegetation types that existed prior to European settlement. These flora vestiges are our Natural Heritage and are worth protecting.
These narrow strips of vegetation provide a contiguous coastal corridor for wild life to shelter, promoting biodiversity.
The FCC needs to reduce backyard beach entry to along Gould Street only allowing beach access via a few dedicated paths.
A comprehensive weed eradication programme followed by revegetating with endemic plants should be priority.

Within 6 months of the adoption of any Action Plan - set up a Community Action Group to reduce the number of Indian Minor Birds in the Municipality.

See for a 'working approach' to this Issue

Aspects would include: information dissemination; i.e. local meetings to form 'Action Groups' to trap on Private & Municipal Lands, targeted to reduce pressure in areas better suited to native species.

I am prepared to speak to this idea and to be active in the setting up of any such initiative.
