At the CPAG Annual General Meeting in October 2017 members passed a special resolution to change the name of Crib Point Advisory Group Inc to Crib Point Action Group Inc.


Crib Point still lives with the prospect of heavy industry due to the large area zoned SUZ1 Port Related Use, This zoning has in the past and continues now to prevent Crib Point from reaching its potential.

The Community is now facing the prospect of AGL permanently berthing a 300 metre FSRU for the import and regasification of LNG for distribution using 55 kilometre a gas pipeline to Pakenham to be constructed by APA.

CPAG is actively working with and supporting NACP Savewesternport in opposing this proposal.

CPAG has been working with the residents of Creswell Street to have the street rezoned from Industrial Use. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council have adopted the rezoning to residential and an application has been presented to the Minister for Planning for final approval.


Over the last twelve months, CPAG with the assistance of experts has carried out a process for the purpose of obtaining the Crib Point and Bittern community’s views on the future planning of the Port Related Uses land in Crib Point.  This process has included a survey, community workshop, and a public meeting.  The outcome of this process is a general consensus that the community does not want this land to remain part of an expanded Port of Hastings and instead want to see it used for a variety of recreational, leisure, residential and other uses that support the unique environment and character of the Crib Point community.
