The redevelopment of the Progress Jetty area was a key deliverable of the Paynesville Foreshore Management Plan adopted by Council in 2017. A design has been developed that seeks to address the issues and actions raised against Precinct C – Township of the Foreshore Management Plan.

A concept plan has been prepared for the site that sits adjacent to the popular commercial strip and contains a well-used boat ramp, a jetty, playground, toilet amenities and ample car parking. The Paynesville Community Craft Centre is also a significant piece of the foreshore. This concept plan has been developed in collaboration with the Paynesville BTA, Community Craft Centre, Landcare Coastcare Group, Gippsland Lakes Yacht Club and Gippsland Ports. Feedback is now being sought form the wider community.

The upgrades proposed include:

  • New pedestrian crossing areas to increase safety
  • Large playground
  • New picnic areas
  • Upgrade to the Community Craft Centre
  • Performance area with terraced seating
  • New realignment of Sunset Drive to add additional green space

Council currently have budgeted $250,000 to commence works to the hardscape improvements. Council will seek external funding for the balance of the planned works
