Plans to be unveiled for multi-million dollar Port Campbell overhaul

Concept plans to transform Port Campbell’s town centre and foreshore will be unveiled at a public meeting on Tuesday night.

The town improvement project will be delivered in stages, costing up to $10 million in a push to overhaul Port Campbell’s streetscape. 

Corangamite Shire said the information session was a chance for residents to have a close look at the plans and provide feedback. The plans will remain on public display until February 12.

Corangamite Shire mayor Jo Beard said council staff and design specialists would be at the meeting to answer questions and listen to feedback.

“We want to make sure the plan improves the look, feel and function of the town centre for the benefit of everyone – so it is important that people tell us what they think will work and what won’t,” she said.

Coastal Ward Councillor Simon Illingworth said the town centre looked tired.

“We need a town centre that looks good and works well for pedestrians and motorists, locals and visitors,” he said.

“I’m interested to see what people think and how we can make it work. This project won’t be rushed in any way, shape or form. We need to get it right.” he said.

The public information session will be held on Tuesday, January 9 at the Port Campbell Arts Space from 7pm.

Designs will also be available to view at the Port Campbell Visitor Information Centre, Parks Victoria office and general store from Wednesday. They can also be viewed at www.corangamite.vic.gov.au

Feedback forms will be available at those locations and can be dropped in the collection boxes there or mailed to Corangamite Shire.
