About the Project

Initial information gathering and questionnaire

Initial engagement of the project was undertaken from October to December 2021. A summary report of the feedback we received from the community has been produced and can be downloaded in the useful document section below.

Concept plan development questionnaire

Engagement was undertaken from May to June 2022 and received 394 questionnaires completed by property owners. A summary report of the feedback we received from the community has been produced and can be downloaded in the useful document section below.

Next steps:

July - September 2022: Develop several options of concept plans that align with the questionnaire results so that a preferred option can be selected by the community. There is likely to be a minimal cost option, then several other options with additional features included with indicative cost ranges. The questionnaire responses will also be reviewed street by street to develop concept plan options and locate any additional features such as landscaping and traffic calming.

October - November 2022: This step of community engagement will involve presenting concept plan options to the community which have been developed based on the questionnaire results so that a preferred option can be selected by the community. Indicative cost ranges for the options will also be included to assist the property owners. The questionnaire responses will also be reviewed street by street to develop the concept plan options and locate any additional features such as landscaping and traffic calming.

Update

From October - December 2021 a questionnaire was sent to property owners within the Sunderland Bay and Surf Beach estates in November 2021, asking if property owners thought there was a need for road and drainage improvements in the area and if they would be prepared to contribute towards upgrades.

A summary of the information gathering and questionnaire results can be found here.

Council have engaged consultants to undertake feature survey, geotechnical and pavement design, flora and fauna studies, a cultural heritage due diligence assessment, street concept plan development and functional drainage designs for the Surf Beach / Sunderland Bay areas as part of concept plan development works. These works will take several months to complete and will assist in understanding the risks and developing the costs estimates for the project.
