Eagle Point - Foreshore Hub Development

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

An open information session was held at Eagle Point Foreshore on 5 December 2020. The project design and progress has also been communicated via online channels including Council’s website and social media, where opportunity was available to provide feedback on the plans.

This feedback showed support for the hub but did raise some concerns about the configuration of the relocated road and the impact on School Road. Council have reviewed the safety of intersection and incorporated further safety improvements. In addition to this further safety improvements are being considered for the intersection of School Road and Eagle Point Road adjacent to the School.

Council have provided updated plans that include improvements to the School Road intersection in the document titled “Section Key Plan - 2015_CD110 B"

Further feedback was received that the development was “inappropriate” to the Eagle Point area. The development of a community hub on the Eagle Point Foreshore is the result of two long-term plans for Eagle Point: The Eagle Point Structure Plan and the Eagle Point Marine and Coastal Management Plan. Both plans were developed with extensive community consultation, with the community indicating that the development of this hub was one of their highest priorities for Eagle Point. These documents can be found on Council's website via the following link: https://www.eastgippsland.vic.gov.au/community-plans/paynesville-and-district

Within these strategic documents it was determined that the Foreshore Hub would include:

  • Realignment of the existing road away from the foreshore
  • Introduction of new water-based play elements which would remove the planned introduction of these elements to the Eagle Point Caravan Park
  • Significant new landscaping to create play areas, paths and walkways and introduce shade to the foreshore
  • Enlarged beach to enhance swimming opportunities
  • Removal of existing toilet block from the foreshore and relocation to a new multi-purpose hub
  • Development of a new multi-functional building accommodating caravan park kiosk, toilets, water-based activity equipment hire storage, café and community space.

A further update will be provided once a construction contract is awarded.
