Surf Parade Shared Path, Inverloch - Stage 2
Submissions to the two proposed design options for Stage 2 of the Surf Parade Shared Path project have now closed.
We're now in the process of collating these comments, and we anticipate this report will go before Council at the July Ordinary Meeting.
In response to a submission to the 2018/19 budget, we included a second option for the path, to include more formalised parking bays.
It is anticipated funding for construction of Stage 2 of the path will be allocated in the 2019/20 budget.
Option 1 features an extension of the shared path from Veronica Street to the Inverloch Surf Life Saving Club and 20 parallel parking bays, which is a loss of 118 bays currently available as informal parking.
On top of the extension of the path, Option 2 includes the provision of 138 parking bays. Option 2 will require vegetation removal which is subject to approval from the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP). Under this option, formalised car parking will be provided parallel with Surf Parade along the foreshore side with the shared path. Kerb and channel will act as a barrier between the parking spaces and the pathway and will minimise the required encroachment into the foreshore.
Feedback was collected on the two options:
- via an online survey
- in person at one of our pop-up sessions:
- Saturday, 6 April located at the Inverloch Park Run
- Saturday, 20 April located at the Inverloch Primary School Fete
- Saturday, 20 April located at the Inverloch Recreation Reserve (Inverloch-Kongwak football game)
- via email email@example.com
We also held a Facebook question and answer session with Councillors and Council Officers on Tuesday, 16 April.
