Upgrades for Paynesville Foreshore

Community Consultation Outcomes

Council has endorsed the Paynesville Maritime Precinct Masterplan Addendum. Council has also prepared concept plans for a proposed upgrade for the Slip Road Maritime Precinct in Paynesville to be funded by a $1.1M grant from the Victorian Government Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions and a more recently announced grant for a further $1M from the Federal Government ‘Regional Recovery Partnership’ fund. Further funding of $4 million has also been provided by the Victorian Government's Regional Recovery Fund. The sum of these grants will enable the full implementation of the concept plan (excluding the canal crossing, which is subject to a feasibility study - which is currently being undertaken).

As a result of the community consultation, council has updated the concept plan to increase the amount of parking but still provide additional landscaping to provide beautification and shade. The originally proposed bund will be removed but ground levels around the boat ramp will be increased to reduce frequent lake-water inundation. It is proposed to add a second boat ramp to the north of the site adjacent to the Gippsland Ports, rather than widen the existing ramp. This will improve safety by providing greater separation between marine industry use of the ramp and the public. Further feasibility investigations will be undertaken on the possibility of an openable bridge or tunnel across the canal. In the meantime council will be upgrading the footpath across the King Street bridge, improving the laneway surface, and providing signage to assist pedestrians and cyclists navigate from the site to the Paynesville township.

Further information on the community consultation and the project can be found here.
