A NEW beach lookout structure in Singleton will be dedicated to the memory of shark victim Laeticia Brouwer.

Singleton residents Leon and Julie Brouwer tragically lost their daughter in a shark attack in April last year while on holidays in Esperance.

The family has been working closely with the City of Rockingham and local building designer North Coast Designs to plan and build a new beach lookout at the main carpark at the end of Singleton Beach Road.

The design team volunteered their time and designs.

Members of the Brouwers’ church are building the lookout in partnership with the City of Rockingham.

The lookout will replace the existing old small lookout and bench at the top of the path.

The new lookout is planned is being constructed and it is expected to be completed tomorrow, March 10.

The Brouwer family have asked for members of the public to respect the site and space needed for the project.

The public will be able to have access and use the new lookout as soon as the works are completed to the satisfaction of the City of Rockingham.
