Country Alliance – Call to open up Frankston Reservoir

Call to open up Frankston Reservoir

The Country Alliance party says it supports the right of anglers to fish in the Frankston Reservoir.

The call follows the banning of angling and other activities such as cycling and walking dogs in the reservoir following representations by the local member of parliament, Liberal MP Geoff Shaw.

“We understand Mr Shaw has sided with environmentalists to ensure the reservoir becomes off limits to anglers”, said party spokesman, Andrew Jones.

“That’s fine, but it means Mr Shaw’s disregard for anglers in his own electorate is clear. It also calls into question the government’s support for anglers”.

“VRFish has actively supported the retention of the reservoir for a range of activities including fishing, and we believe their position needs greater support from the government”.

Mr Jones said his party, which will contest the next state election, will actively look after the interests of anglers and ensure better consultation on environmental issues.
