Dicky Beach Precinct Plan
  • Last updated:
  • 30 Jun 2019

The Dicky Beach Precinct Plan[3040KB] was adopted at council's Ordinary Meeting on 10 November 2016. Since then, council has been finalising the design as well as securing funds for the project through its Capital Works Program. 

Purpose

The Dicky Beach Precinct Plan was developed in response to the partial removal of the SS Dicky wreck in 2015. The purpose of the plan is to define the long term vision for the area and help identify the future location of interpretive displays that acknowledge and preserve the wreck's heritage values and significance as a cultural and iconic landmark.

Key design outcomes

  • Define the long term vision for the foreshore.
  • Develop the precinct's identity to support and distinguish this important local centre.
  • Maximise the recreation, social, cultural and economic opportunities within the Dicky Beach precinct.
  • Create a safe and usable precinct area that is high quality, comfortable, safe, accessible and inviting.
  • Incorporating interpretive initiatives that reference the SS Dicky along with the holiday making and recreational heritage of the site.
  • Improve the connectivity, open space, recreation and play, social gatherings and arrival experience.

Community engagement

When council adopted the Dicky Beach Precinct Plan, it included the Dicky Beach Skate Park. It was determined that the skate park would be retained in Dicky Beach Park and upgraded, in line with the original Dicky Beach Precinct Plan design.

Council invited the community to have their say on the three proposed design options of the skate park by participating in an online survey. Survey closed 14 June 2019.

Where to from here

Community feedback will be used to determine a final design of the skate park. The project team will collate and review all feedback and develop a final design. The final design will be determined in late 2019 with construction planned for 2021.

The program and scheduled funds are based on the 2018 adopted 10 Year Capital Works Program and is subject to an annual budget endorsement which may result in change.
