Progressive Port Phillip

Progressive Port Phillip is founded on an understanding that the world—and our community, neighbourhood and municipality—is changing. The future will not look like the past. Old solutions will not do.

Progressive Port Phillip is an invitation to imagine a better future for our community, to encourage each one of us to think more deeply about what our own City of Port Phillip community will look like after the damage of the pandemic.

Progressive Port Phillip is a movement for change, seeking to embed the creativity and compassion so evident during the pandemic and to inspire a new politics in Port Phillip.

    What happens when Parks are leased to private event operators?

    Each spring and summer, Council allows Catani Gardens and South Beach Reserve to be fenced off, periodically, by private operators and transformed into ticketed music events. These weekend ‘festivals’ require extensive infrastructure and increasingly longer set up and pull down times.
