The Bemm River community recently provided feedback regarding the design of the new Luderick Point boating facility.
Results of the survey have been collated into a report that indicates what respondents consider are the important requirements of a new facility. In summary, survey responses identified the greatest preference for a new facility that has:
- Improved accessibility is a wider range of weather conditions,
- Dredging of the immediate boat ramp area is required, and
- Construction to occur from mid-June to mid-September.
What are the next steps?
A draft design based around a dual lane boat ramp with a centrally located T-shaped floating jetty will now be developed and the community will be asked to provide feedback before the final design is developed. For a summary of the full survey result please see the Community Consultation Report noted below.
Given the success of recent survey a similar online consultation process will be used to gain feedback on the draft design once it is prepared.
People that signed up to receive further information will automatically receive information regarding the draft design as soon as it is available, which is likely to be by the end of January 2017.
Feedback on the draft design will also be invited via our website, local newspapers, email newsletter and Your Say East Gippsland.
