Action Supporters can Take
As Bayside has already lodged their application for a permit to fill Cerberus with concrete, time is of the essence. Mayor & Councillor del Porto stated that "the concrete infill is supported by both the Federal [Heritage] Department and Heritage Victoria" and appears to believe that it is certain to be approved. The closing date for public comments is Tuesday the 24th of April.
Our request is that members write to (not email) Heritage Victoria and state politely why filling Cerberus with concrete is a bad idea and how the Polyurethane / Tank Foam solution is preferable. Even just one or two lines are enough to register your concern. If lost for words simply copy our pro-form letter below.
PO Box 500
|Being interested in preserving Victoria's heritage, I am appalled at Bayside Council's application to fill HMVS Cerberus with concrete. I am also surprised that, as stated by Mayor del Porto, Heritage Victoria supports the filling of Cerberus with concrete. I hope that Heritage Victoria rejects the non-reversible concrete fill proposal and thoroughly and impartially investigates the far superior and non-destructive method of using Polyurethane and Tank Foam.|

Write to your local Member of Parliament
Many of our members & supporters have written to the relevant ministers over the last few years. My suspicion is that politicians cannot receive too many letters urging them to act in order to Save the Cerberus.We strongly encourage all of our members to do likewise.
To facilitate this we have included links to the addresses of
Victorian State Lower House (Assembly) Members of Parliament
Victorian State Upper House (Council) Members of Parliament
Australian House of Representatives Members of Parliament
If you do nothing else to help save Cerberus please write to your State and Federal members.
They do take note of elector's concerns.
