Green Point Precinct Landscape Conservation Management Plan

28 August 2013

A new Green Point Precinct Landscape Conservation Management Plan to improve the future amenity of Brighton’s Green Point precinct and conserve its historical cultural values, has been adopted by Council after an extensive period of community consultation.

Features of the Plan include projects such as improving garden beds and paths, providing picnic benches and seating, enhancing the heritage elements of the gardens, increasing landscaping and formalising the car park area and installing additional wayfinding and interpretation signage.

The Green Point precinct includes the Brighton Beach Gardens, a landmark war memorial and a generous foreshore car park. The area accommodates thousands of visitors each year, including visitors from across Victoria who attend one of Council’s premier annual events – the Bright n Sandy Food & Wine Festival.

Council’s 2013/2014 Capital Works budget includes funding to implement Stage One of the car park construction works and funds are available within the open space budget to commence landscape works recommended in the Management Plan.

Located on the Brighton foreshore, and considered one of Bayside’s most popular landmark recreational sites, Green Point features historical and cultural elements and is a popular location for local events and weddings. It is classified in the Bayside Open Space Strategy (2012) as a foreshore space of municipal and regional significance.

A copy of the Green Point Precinct Landscape Conservation Management Plan is available on Council’s website
