RACV fights for Mornington events centre OK

The RACV is facing fierce opposition to its expansion plans for the Cape Schanck Resort on the Mornington Peninsula near the rugged Bass Strait coastline.

RACV wants to dramatically expand the Cape Schanck Resort by adding a conference centre with a 300-person capacity at a cost of $135 million.

The plan, lodged with the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council late last year, has angered residents who say the size and height of the project is inappropriate for the area and will bring significant light pollution. Planning rules were changed in the final days of the Napthine government to allow the project to go ahead.

The RACV insists the height of the building will mean less land will be taken up by the facility on the 7.6ha site and will also reduce the environmental impact.

Sue Blake, the RACV’s clubs and resorts manager, said there had been extensive consultation with both the council and the community on the plan since 2012.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has organised a mediation meeting for residents and the RACV for tomorrow [February 24], to discuss the plan.
