Plans For Arthurs Seat Chairlift

By Rebecca Richmond

Plans for a new chairlift at Arthurs Seat have been submitted to council and are available for public viewing. Mornington Peninsula Shire has received an application for a planning permit at Arthurs Seat State Park. Council documents state the application is for a permit for the “use and development of Arthurs Seat sky lift gondola facility”.

The application outlines plans for an upper-station ­facility, including a cafe, ­office and toilets, as well as a lower station facility with a kiosk, gondola workshop and interpretative centre. Simon McKeon, head of the consortium building the chairlift, said enclosed gondolas would be a feature of the new development. “There has been a swing away from open chairlifts to accommodate the needs of different people,” he said. “It’s also much safer.”

Mr McKeon said the plans had been a culmination of years of work. “Hopefully this one, like the old one, will be a much loved attraction for the area.” Arthurs Seat resident Matthew Bisogni — who is ­opposed to the scale of the project — said while the plans were extensive he felt there were a lot of inconsistencies for such a large project, including the bushfire and evacuation plans.

The council will not make a decision on the application before March 14. The public can view the application or submit an objection.
