Sound shell seeking community support

The Glade in Inverloch is a popular place for live music, and Bass Coast Shire Council is asking the community if they'd like to see a sound shell constructed at the site.

The sound shell proposal is an exciting joint project by Lions Club of Inverloch and District, Rotary Club of Inverloch, Inverloch Tourism Association and Council, but before it can progress, it needs the support of the community.

At its September Ordinary Meeting last year, Council resolved to provide in-principle support for the placement of a Sound Shell in The Glade for community use and future events.

Council is working with these community groups to seek support for the Sound Shell construction through community engagement.

It is proposed that all funding for this project will come through community fundraising led by the Lions Club.

Lions Club of Inverloch and District and Sound Shell Committee Chair person, Klaus Edel said the project leaders are eager to discuss the project with the community and ascertain the level of support.

“The consultation process will involve an online survey and also attending events at The Glade to speak with community members face to face,” Mr Edel said.

“We are very excited about this project and believe it is something that the public will embrace.”

The Sound Shell Committee will be at the Inverloch Jazz Festival event in The Glade on 13 March, and the Rotary Market at the Hub on 16 April. If your wish is to see a Sound Shell in The Glade, come along and register you support or complete the online survey at www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/soundshell.
