Following on from this previous blog posted on 26 February 2015 – Batman Park feedback summary
After reviewing the community feedback and discussing the proposals with representatives of the Indented Head Community Association, the Bellarine Bayside Committee has agreed with the Association to hold-off on these projects until after a Place-making Project is completed for the Batman Park precinct. The Consultation Report can be downloaded here.
Through a consultative and integrated planning process, the Place-making Project will provide strategic directions for the siting of community facilities and infrastructure, such as disabled access. The Bellarine Bayside Committee is presently discussing a potential partnership with the City of Greater Geelong regarding the delivery of a Place-making Project at Indented Head.
With the approval of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, the Committee has decided to redirect the funding which was originally meant for these two projects to the removal of a number of pedestrian safety issues on the Coastal Trail in Portarlington and Indented Head. More details about these works will be provided on Bellarine Bayside’s Blog in the near future.
In regard to the existing concrete ramp at the northern end of the Batman Park, the Committee has decided to use part of the original funding to mitigate the immediate safety concerns on the ramp by widening and resurfacing the ramp and installing hand rails. These works will be done over winter.
Thank you again for your participation in the community workshop and the online survey.
