Special Guest Speaker at Annual General Meeting BPA – Tuesday 16 October 2018
Beaconsfield Reservoir Nature Reserve
Geoff Lockwood Manager of Beaconsfield Reservoir Nature Reserve will be the guest speaker at the BPA AGM Tuesday 16 October 2018. The future use and accessibility of the Beaconsfield Reservoir Nature Reserve has been the subject of much discussion. Melbourne Water who are responsible for the Reservoir advised of problems with maintaining the Reservoir water levels, dam wall, slipway and outlets with a proposal to reduce water level by approx. 6 metres. An information meeting was held at Upper Beaconsfield with representatives from Melbourne Water, Cardinia Environment Coalition, Beaconsfield Reservoir Nature Reserve management and friends group. Open days have been held and it is hoped that the proposed redevelopment of the reservoir wall and future plans for the Reserve will allow more accessibility for the community to enjoy this former reservoir for the Mornington Peninsula. Come along on Tuesday 16 October to hear about this beautiful Reserve.
