Clr Peter Denholm raised several Dudley Peninsula issues at July's council meeting, including ongoing calls for hazard reduction in Baudin Conservation Park east of Penneshaw.

Also raised was the future of Frenchman's Rock if the visitor centre is taken over by private operators. Potholes on Blue Gums Road and the need to repair steps onto Penneshaw beach were also issues.

Baudin Beach Progress Association is still keen to proceed with a $10,000 rebuild of its boat ramp but needs the council's approval before work can begin.

Meanwhile, The Islander contacted the EPA about the Christmas Cove fuel leak who says there's still no explanation as to where the fuel leak at the rock wall originated from.

Mr Denholm also informed the council of the death of Jean Griffith, one of last Islanders who served in World War II, with now only three left alive. She was buried with military honours.
