Members and Friends End of Year Event

On Wednesday the 8th of December we welcomed our members and friends to our annual end 0f year event to celebrate the achievements of 2021.

These include:

Championing the Frankston rail extension, including the launch of

a concerted campaign in October that will run until the federal

election before mid-2022 and with an eye on the state election in

12 months’ time.

 

Arguing for improved, accessible and affordable car parking in

Frankston’s CBD.

 

Successfully calling for Business NBN to be made available to a

wider footprint in Frankston. Our membership of the Committees

for Cities & Regions network from March 2020 enabled C4GF to

be part of the consultation process.

 

Co-hosting the forum for property and business owners to provide

crucial input into Frankston Council’s “CBD Revitalisation and

Structure Plan”.

 

Encouraging continued renewal of Frankston retail with 2021

highlights including opening of a revamped Karingal Hub, C4GF

winning a grant to activate and promote ‘Outdoor dining’, support

traders affected by lockdowns, and start revitalisation of the

Nepean Highway precinct.

 

Supporting construction teams now delivering many of the big

public and private infrastructure projects underway in our region

including Salta’s freight hub at Dandenong South, the

Lathams/Hall roads duplications, Chisholm TAFE stage two, and

the game-changing luxury apartment tower Horizon Frankston in

our CBD.

 

Connecting two consortia bidding for Frankston Hospital

redevelopment with local industry leaders, and educating local

businesses about government procurement processes.

 

We enjoyed catching up with many of our members after another year of lockdowns. We thank all those who attended the event during this busy time of year and we hope to catch up with many more members in the new year.

During the evening we wished our long- standing treasurer and founding working group member Grahame Gordon farewell who retired from the board this year. His vision to establish the committee and his tireless work since its inception in 2017 will not go unnoticed. We thank him and wish him all the best.

Here are some of the highlights from the evening.
