    Please provide the dates, times and venues of the community consultation meetings which have been held regarding this issue. I don't believe that any member in the Bemm River community would have been in agreeance with this very resource heavy, and ridiculous suggestion.

    @ Jacqui Sargeant

    The development of the Bemm River fishing platforms project has been initiated by the Bemm River Angling Club.

    The Angling Club received a Victorian Government grant to install fishing platforms with the aim of improving access to foreshore-based angling in the Bemm River area.

    East Gippsland Shire Council is not contributing funding to this project. We are assisting the Angling Club, with its selection of locations. The current request for feedback in relation to the proposed location and design of the third and final fishing platform is part of the assistance we are providing to the Angling Club.

    The feedback received to date indicates that the proposed site may not be the most appropriate, so it is unlikely that the proposal will proceed.

    Who is on the Tender Evaluation Panel for the Luderick Point Jetty and Ramp upgrade Contract from the Bemm River Community?

    Desmond Wilson asked over 3 years ago

    Thank you for taking the time to ask a question about the Tender Evaluation Panel.

    Council cannot disclose the membership of the Tender Evaluation Panel as this could compromise the probity and confidentiality of the process. 

    You can imagine that, like a jury, members of the public, or even tenderers, could approach the panel members and try to sway their deliberations during the evaluation process. 

    Hence, we, as a rule, do not disclose this information. However we can disclose that there is an independent person (i.e. a non council person) on the evaluation panel.
