Forethought sought for Bay waterfront planning

Batemans Bay locals are being encouraged to meet on the banks of the Clyde River and share ideas on how to activate Eurobodalla’s waterfront gateway.

Eurobodalla Council will host three walk-and-talk events, starting from the shelters near Clyde Street, next week.

· Thursday 22 August 3-4pm

· Thursday 22 August 5.15-6.15pm

· Saturday 24 August 9.30-10.30am

The walk-and-talks will give Batemans Bay locals a chance to share solutions on how to best encourage activities for more residents and visitors to enjoy the foreshore.

Council’s manager of strategic growth Liz Rankin said boosting business and leisure along the foreshore would reinforce Batemans Bay as the shire’s gateway and tourism hub.

“We want to hear from locals how to enhance this important public space, how to establish new activities and explore different ways to use the waterfront,” Ms Rankin said.

“What would the community like to see in the urban design and built structures for the area? How do we create for Eurobodalla a waterfront gateway that helps drive social and economic benefits?”

Ms Rankin said both Council and the NSW Government recognised the Bay as a key regional centre and tourism hub, and had a strong desire to revitalise the waterfront alongside the replacement of the Batemans Bay bridge.

“The NSW Government is investing in opportunities along the foreshore and we’ve invited specialist urban designers Inspiring Place to work with Council, businesses, landowners and the broader community on the Batemans Bay waterfront,” she said.
