This proposal aims to better access to the headland at South Gannet Beach by constructing a boardwalk and viewing platform with seating for all to use. Already a popular spot for locals to gather the present viewing platform is inadequate for the community needs.
The construction of the boardwalk and viewing platform will be wheelchair accessible and will discourage people from making their own tracks thus enabling the natural vegetation to regenerate. There will also be some landscaping consistent with current vegetation.
At the 28 February 2021 Public Meeting the community agreed to proceed with this proposal in conjunction with Council staff experts. Critical factors such as engineering designs, review of environmental factors, Indigenous heritage evaluation and project costs will need to be considered. Once this additional work has been completed then the proposal will be bought back to the community for further consultation.
