THE future of Scarborough’s beachfront was decided this month after plans outlining major transformations were revealed.
Planning Minister John Day released the formally adopted master plan, which outlines the long-term vision for the area.
“As part of the overall redevelopment, Scarborough will see foreshore upgrades, including the creation of new play areas, green open spaces, a skate park, piazzas and boardwalks,” Mr Day said.
The Scarborough Surf Life Saving Club will be revamped and new dining, shopping and entertainment areas will be created.
Mr Day said the State Government was calling for an architecture firm to design a modern multi-use complex in addition to the new- look Scarborough foreshore.
“The complex will integrate seamlessly with new open spaces, play areas and the City of Stirling’s proposed pool as well as accommodate the Scarborough Surf Lifesaving Club and the city’s beach services,” he said.
The Government has pledged $30 million towards the project along with the City of Stirling’s $27.4 million commitment.
Plans and redevelopment frameworks will be released for comment later this year.
