Frankston Council Approves Frankston Yacht Club

By Rebecca Richmond

Massive redevelopment plans for Frankston Yacht Club and foreshore have been given the nod.

Council voted to back the plan for a new three-storey building including a 164-seat restaurant, 104-seat cafe, function centre and community room. Greater Frankston Business Chamber has praised the redevelopment, saying it will be a great public asset and enhance the foreshore.

But environmentalists argue it lacks car spaces and has too much emphasis on commercial space. They also say the council has rushed the project. A report to Frankston Council stated the redeveloped yacht club needed 150 car spaces under the planning scheme, but only 84 will be provided — a shortfall of 66 spaces.

Planning consultant Marco Negri said not as much parking was required on site because patrons would be able to park nearby in the Frankston CBD. The council is seeking tenders of up to $7.5 million for the project.
