Cape Paterson Bay Beach Precinct Masterplan


The Cape Paterson Bay Beach Activity Area Master Plan (3.6MB) was adopted at the December 2014 Ordinary Council Meeting.

The Masterplan was developed following public consultation, and provides a vision for the highly used Bay Beach area of the Cape Paterson Foreshore and will be used to seek funding for future improvements to the area. These includes the provision or upgrade of a number of facilities such as pedestrian access, car parking and picnic/barbecue facilities.

The Plan supports the objective of the Wonthaggi Surf Life Saving Club to develop a new clubroom and public facility and improvements to the iconic man-made tidal rock pool. Nature conservation works through the removal of environmental weeds and revegetation of indigenous plant species and further protection of the Hooded Plover will also continue.

Council will now work to identify funding for the various infrastructure identified in the plan.
