Seaspray plans for foreshore upgrade

WALKING tracks and public barbecues could be options for Seaspray’s Foreshore Reserve following the re-location of the caravan park.

Seaspray Reserve Committee of Management chair Diana Teo said community consultation would be paramount in plans for the Reserve, with six people elected at a public meeting to form a sub-committee to seek community input. She said the sub committee will meet with the committee of management monthly.

“About 50 people attended the public meeting where the committee outlined plans to finish off the first stage of the development before we move onto the second stage, which is levelling off all buildings on-site,” Ms Teo said.

Ms Teo said the removal of the three structures still on-site had been voted on, with the removal expected to be complete by May.

“We are hoping to get started pretty much straight away,” she said.

“Two of the structures contain asbestos, so that will take some time, but we are hoping they will be removed by May.”

Ms Teo said early ideas that could be implemented from the committee of management’s current budget included walking tracks and barbecues and urged the public to submit their ideas to the sub committee.

“We want to have ideas driven by locals,” she said.

“We will have to come up with a plan to DEPI for approval, which should happen in the next few months.”
