Mallacoota Streetscape Upgrade

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

Mallacoota’s Maurice Avenue, in the town centre, is getting a major makeover. We're upgrading the streetscape of Mallacoota to improve the functionality, aesthetics and operation of Maurice Avenue as identified in the Mallacoota Structure Plan 2007 and Masterplan. It is also being upgraded as identified by the Mallacoota and District Recovery Association (MADRA) in order to play a key role in the Disaster Recovery Plan and contribute majorly to commercial and tourist activities.

Earlier this year a Project Control Group (PCG), made up of East Gippsland Shire Council (EGSC), Mallacoota and District Recovery Association (MADRA) and Mallacoota and District Business and Tourism Association (MADBATA) was formed to take carriage of this important project. The PCG formed a Project Reference Group (PRG), made up of representatives from key stakeholder groups in Mallacoota. The Project Reference Group has a representative from each of the following organisations/interest groups:

• East Gippsland Shire Council

• Mallacoota and District Recovery Association

• Mallacoota and District Business and Tourism Association

• Traditional owners

• Friends of Mallacoota

• Young families

• Arts community

• Senior community

• Vision and mobility impaired

• Youth

• Halls & Rec Committee

The PRG and Maurice Avenue businesses have established key needs for the project which were used to establish a brief for the concept design work. Concept design is underway and broader community consultation will happen as a part of that process during November 2021.

Please also read the Frequently Asked Questions in the right hand column for further information.


BUDGET

The total budget for the project is $2.0 million. With contributions of $1.5 million provided by The Australian Government's Regional Recovery Program and $500,000 from East Gippsland Shire Council’s capital works budget 2021/22.


SCHEDULE

The start date of the construction is yet to be determined as East Gippsland Shire Council is still only at concept stage of the project. We will endeavour to avoid holiday season as much as it practical. We will work closely with businesses and the appointed contractors to ensure any impact to business is kept to a minimum.


HAVE YOUR SAY

The first phase of the community consultation has now closed. In November 2021 we were seeking your feedback on the three concept ideas which have been developed as an initial talking point for what the project might deliver. Council held two in person information sessions at the Rotunda on Maurice Ave, with representatives available to help answer questions and listen to feedback, and had an online survey open to collect feedback. Thank you to everyone who attended the sessions and shared feedback either online or in person. With the consultation period now closed we are reviewing all feedback and survey responses to move to the next stage of the project with a concept design to be developed and available for further consultation in early 2022. Please subscribe to the project updates in the right hand column to stay up to date.
