Plans have been developed for the next phase of works at the Pambula Rivermouth Reserve.
The works will add to significant parkland improvements and foreshore rock work completed in August 2014.
Council’s Manager Leisure and Recreation, John Grady, said that feedback following the previous works had shaped the outcome of the new plans.
“Before designing the plans we took on board feedback from the community, particularly from Council’s Access Advisory Committee and the Pambula Surf Lifesaving Club,” he said.
“Key aspects of the upcoming works include a new accessible amenities building including an outdoor shower and baby change area.
“A ramp providing access to the beach for all users will be an important addition to the reserve which will open this great location up to the wider community.
“Improved stormwater management through an engineered rock ‘gabion’ basket that controls and defuses water during heavy rainfall will also provide a major improvement to the beach area.
“We have worked hard with the community to balance the quiet location and natural beauty of area with its popularity, size limitations and constraints.
“This is a good example of Council and the community working together to deliver on the needs and expectations of local users and visitors,” Mr Grady said.
The works will be advertised shortly on Council’s Tenderlink page
