Dawesville Channel foreshore draft master plan on agenda

CITY of Mandurah councillors are expected to vote on the draft South East Dawesville Channel – Foreshore Master Plan at the August 27 council meeting.

The plan is for the public foreshore area along the estuary and the Dawesville Cut.

It features a boardwalk, viewing platforms, a nature play area for children, a universal access path, an exercise fitness circuit, a jetty, shelters, seating and an upgrade to toilet facilities.

In July 2017, Council endorsed the South East Dawesville Channel Land Use Plan as a guide to enable the development of a master plan for the site.

The City engaged an external consultant to assist in the facilitation of the community engagement program and to develop the draft master plan in line with community and stakeholder feedback.

A report to council recommends option two as a guiding document to the future development of Lot 30624 – stage one.

If endorsed by council, the next step will be developing a funding strategy for the future staged delivery of the project.
