Jetty Triangle moves forward

Bass+Coast+Shire+Council+will+go+to+tender+for+the+detailed+design+and+construction+of+the+Jetty+Triangle+in+Cowes.

Bass Coast Shire Council will go to tender for the detailed design and construction of the Jetty Triangle in Cowes.

This project is part of the Cowes Revitalisation Project which involves three catalyst projects – the Jetty Triangle, Cowes Cultural and Community Centre, and Transit Centre and All Day Car Park.

The redevelopment of the Triangle will include the installation of terraced, grassed areas for event space, new pathways, landscaping and access to the Cenotaph.

At the Ordinary Council meeting on 14 December 2016, Council gave the green light to go to tender for the Triangle with an estimated costs of $2.3 million.

The tender will include a hold point following the detailed design to not proceed with construction until State or Federal funding has been confirmed.

A further report will be presented to Council detailing options for progressing the other two components of the Revitalisation Project.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, explained exactly what Council’s decision meant for the Shire.

“This is very exciting news, especially for the Cowes community and central business district, as the redevelopment of the Jetty Triangle was identified as a priority in the Cowes Activity Centre Plan,” Cr Rothfield said.

“Once this project is completed, the Triangle will become a must-visit for tourists and locals alike as a place to relax, socialise, be entertained and enjoy.”

Council will be going to tender in the first half of 2017, so people may see consultants, engineers and landscape architects walking around the area in preparation for their design and tender responses.

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Council’s Infrastructure Project Lead, Derek Peters, on (03) 5671 2493 or email d.peters@basscoast.vic.gov.au.
