Bass Coast Shire Council is looking for feedback from the community on the Bass Coast and Phillip Island aquatic and leisure centre feasibility studies and concept plans.

In 2015, Council adopted a 10-year Bass Coast Aquatics Strategy that recommended the redevelopment of the Bass Coast Aquatic and Leisure Centre in Wonthaggi and the construction of a new district aquatic leisure centre at Phillip Island. In 2020, Otium Planning Group were appointed to develop feasibility studies and concept plans for both centres.

Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said that engagement with the community and is considered crucial and feedback received will be critical in shaping the design and operations of both centres.

“It’s really important that the community has the opportunity to have their say on these significant projects,” Cr Tessari said.

The community will be able to provide their feedback at drop-in sessions, which will be held in both Cowes and Wonthaggi in coming weeks, as well as via an online survey.

In Wonthaggi, the sessions will be held at the Bass Coast Aquatic and Leisure Centre, 41 Wentworth Road on Wednesday, 2 June from 9.00am to 1.00pm and on Saturday, 19 June from 9.00am to 1.00pm.

The Cowes sessions will be at the Phillip Island Leisure Centre, 10-12 Church Street, on Wednesday, 9 June from 9.00am to 1.00pm and on Saturday, 12 June from 9.00am to 1.00pm.
