  • 2020: The approved funding agreement was received in December 2020 and more detailed planning and design began.
  • 2021: In the second half of 2021, Councillors were provided with an update on the Master Plan noting the proposed timber boardwalk wasn’t feasible and the existing concrete seawall is approaching the end of its useful life.
    - Stormwater upgrades and the replacement of kerb, parking bays and footpaths on Flinders Street, Beauty Point were also completed in preparation for future foreshore works.
    - Local residents were engaged on a proposal to change the Esplanade to one way traffic only to allow for more parking in the area.
  • 2022: The Rotary Club of West Tamar and West Tamar Lions Club worked with Council to design the jointly funded All Abilities Playground.
    - Councillors were presented with an alternate design by external architects, however constraints identified during design review has meant that this plan will no longer be pursued.
    - The West Tamar Council are working closely with a local engineering consultancy to further develop concept drawings available here. Community input will be considered at critical stages throughout this process as the plans are developed.
