Community input sought for new Dendy Street Beach Pavilion

18 August 2014

Bayside City Council is seeking community input into the best ‘look’ for a new pavilion that will replace the existing Brighton Life Saving Club at the Dendy Street Beach.

Bayside Mayor Laurence Evans said that the construction of a new building on the site was an outstanding opportunity not only for the people of Bayside but for the State more broadly.

“The Dendy Street Beach is home to Brighton’s iconic beach boxes and a significant location not only for the Bayside community but for Victoria as a whole,” Mr Evans said.

“The opportunity to build a new pavilion on this site provides an important opportunity to improve and enhance this important community resource and tourist attraction,” Mr Evans said.

Council is seeking input from the community to help guide the design process for the new building.

“Community feedback will help guide Council and the appointed architects to design a building that not only complements its location but is one in which the community can be proud,” he said.

Mr Evans said that the new pavilion will help provide improve amenities for all beach users.

“Alongside facilities for the Brighton Life Saving Club, the new pavilion will house a café, kiosk, community space and public toilets,” he said.

The new building forms part of the larger Dendy Street Beach Master Plan which was approved by council in August 2013. Other improvements include redirecting stormwater drainage, upgrading beach access paths and the car park, landscaping and new signage.

Feedback can be provided online before 12 September 2014 or onsite at one of two drop in sessions at Brighton Surf Life Saving Club (Dendy Street Beach, Brighton) on Saturday 30 August and Saturday 6 September from 10am-2pm.
