 'The communities of the Northern Bellarine Peninsula - Portarlington, Indented Head and St. Leonards have common issues; ageing populations, lots of holiday houses, a lack of infrastructure to support walking, unmade roads, no footpaths, new estates emerging from the countryside. Where's the walkability? Where's the connection?'
