A full-day forum to discuss a possible bike/walking track between Ocean Grove and Point Lonsdale and the impact it might have on the environment will be held on Friday 21 June.
The form will focus on the ‘green wedge’ between the towns and will inform residents of the concerns, opportunities and risks associated with a Southern Bellarine Coastal Trail.
The forum will allow locals to get a better understanding of the risks associated with a coastal trail between Ocean Grove and Point Lonsdale.
This largely involves the creation of an Ocean Grove to Point Lonsdale bicycle trail, but also includes other proposals, such as an environment centre at Lake Victoria
The forum, on 21 June at Shell Road pavilion, Ocean Grove from 9.30am to 4.30pm, is free to attend but it limited to 150 people.
See eventbrite.com.au/e/southern-bellarine-coastal-forum-tickets-61857947787 for tickets.
There were only about 50 seats left when the Voice went to print last Friday.
