TWO dogs have been missing for more than a
week from a property in Coronet Bay.
Allie and Dozer were last seen by their own-
ers in their backyard at around noon on Good
Friday. Coronet Bay residents then spotted the
dogs at around 2pm the same day, but no-one
has reportedly seen them since.
Missing is a male bull Arab cross (Dozer) and
a female staffy cross (Allie). Owner Jess Smith
has door-knocked, dropped letters off in mail-
boxes and driven all over the countryside and
into Melbourne searching for the two dogs.
“I have done everything in my power to find
them,” she said.
“There has been amazing support from the
Coronet Bay community. There were people
walking around calling out the dogs’ names the
“Some of the locals have now even started a
collection tin at the local shop to go towards a
Jess said she has looked in pounds and shel-
ters, and has contacted councils and vets. She
created a Facebook post which has had more
than 1000 shares, but still no luck.
“I’ve even reported them stolen to police as
there have been no sightings or news for a week
“The more news gets out there, the more peo-
ple can keep an eye out.”
If anyone’s seen either of the dogs or believes
they may know where the dogs are, contact Jess
Smith on 0421 882 104.
Dozer is a male bull Arab-cross, missing
from Coronet Bay since Good Friday. Both
dogs are very friendly and the owners are
concerned for their dogs’ welfare.
Allie is a female staffy-cross, missing
from Coronet Bay since Good Friday.
These people are members of the influential Alternative Technology Association of Australia and they liked what they saw during a visit
to The Cape Eco Village at Cape Paterson last Sunday. M471717

THE growth and development of The Cape
Eco Village at Cape Paterson could not have
come at a better time.
With the cost, and even availability of en-
ergy for the home a big talking point among
consumers, everyone is looking for cheaper,
more sustainable ways to live.
And increasingly, designers and builders
are looking at what is being achieved at Cape
Paterson, where Australia’s first truly sus-
tainable residential project is being built.
Driven on by the steeply rising cost of en-
ergy, not to mention climate change; build-
ers, engineers, architects and scientists are
seeking out new and innovative ways to cut
down on the use and cost of fossil fuels.
And at The Cape Eco Village, builders are
introducing many of these innovations into
their building projects.
Take Inverloch builder Dave Martin for ex-
He’s in the process of building Victoria’s
first 10-star energy rated home, featuring
all the best design elements in a home that
doesn’t need heating or cooling, apart from
Among those innovations is the use of
‘ phase change material’ insulation that re-
sponds to the rise and fall in heat to better
insulate the home, keeping at a more even
temperature in summer and winter.
If you want to know more, you’ll have to
ask Dave, because it all gets a bit technical
but innovative design doesn’t have to equal
big bucks. His homes are being designed
with upfront affordability in mind, and no-
cost or cost-positive energy solutions going
The opportunity and encouragement to
introduce the latest in sustainable building
techniques at The Cape is setting the project
apart as nationally significant in Australia.
It’s something of which we can be extreme-
“We’ve got nine homes completed there
now or in the process of being completed,
and five set to start, ” said The Cape project
principal, Brendan Condon.
“We’re getting to the point now where we’ll
be able to open Stage Two.”
Stage One featured 32 allotments at the
centre of the estate but Stage Two will see
allotments with coastal views opened up to
“We had hoped to release these blocks lat-
er but we’ve had considerable demand for
blocks with coastal views, views of the Prom
and Cape Paterson so they will be among the
next ones released.
“In recent times we’ve had a lot of visitors
coming down to see what we’re doing here.
We’ve had the Minister for Energy, Environ-
ment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio,
builders and designers, a number of sustain-
ability groups, universities and schools.
“This weekend, we’ve got 50 members of
the Alternative Technology Association of
Australia for look. They get what we are
doing here and they’ve been tremendously
helpful, initially in the planning stages, but
also in offering us ideas and encouragement.
“We’re delighted to have them here today
and we feel strongly that they’ll go back with
a good message for the tens of thousands of
members of the organisation.”
The only thing they did find challenging,
during a trip to the country last Sunday,
even with in-car GPS mapping, was finding
the location of The Cape.
“The only issue today for a lot of the people
coming down is that they haven’t been able
to find the place,” said Mr Condon.
“What we need is a proper sign up on the
main road so people know where it is. That’s
really the only thing holding us back now.
“We’ve been working with the Bass Coast
Shire’s planning department on this and
they seem to be taking a very technical posi-
tion on the rules.
“But this is a nationally significant build-
ing project now with tremendous potential
and providing people with a reasonable op-
portunity to see it is vitally important at this
A temporary billboard on Cape Paterson
Road, at the entrance to the town, back far
enough from the right-hand turn into Sea-
ward Drive, is what’s needed.
And it wouldn’t hurt for the shire to have
a look at the dangerous intersection of Sea-
ward Drive and Tarooh Street while they’re
