Community engagement for Surf Beach and Sunderland Bay continues

Friday 13 May 2022

Bass Coast Shire Council will continue its development of concept plans for the potential special charge scheme for road and drainage upgrade works for the Surf Beach and Sunderland Bay estates.

Following community consultation in late 2021 and the Council decision in March this year to proceed to the Project Planning Phase, Council is now seeking further community input, to inform the development of concept plans, cost estimates and proportioning of costs for the potential scheme.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan said that residents of these estates should have received a new questionnaire and supporting information in the mail, to enable them to provide their feedback.

“We are inviting everyone who is interested in this project to participate and guide the development of the concept plans, so that a range of options can be drafted and presented back to the community,” Cr Whelan said.

“Feedback can also be provided online, through our Engage Bass Coast website, at

“We know that many property owners in these estates are currently experiencing drainage and dust issues. Therefore, the focus of this round of community consultation is on the aspects of the design that relate to streetscaping characteristics, intersection and traffic calming devices, footpaths, parking, lighting, as well as interim dust treatments and speed reduction measures,” Cr Whelan concluded.

The Surf Beach and Sunderland Bay estates is the highest priority on Council’s Urban Road and Drainage Improvement Policy Priority List.
