CAPEBridgewater residents are pushing for a possible consolidation of the three existing buildings on the township’s foreshore.
A total of 40 residents attended the public workshop at the Portland Surf Life Saving Club rooms on Thursday night as part of the early stages to develop the Cape Bridgewater Master Plan.
One of the constant themes from the workshop was the three buildings – the surf life saving club rooms, the public shower-toilet block and the Bridgewater Bay Café.
Residents expressed a wish that the café be expanded to include a second deck or that there be a consolidation of all three buildings to allow for more recreational space at the foreshore.
The master plan is being developed by Loone Town Planning for the Glenelg Shire Council.
Shire chief executive officer Sharon Kelsey told the meeting the master plan was a necessity if the council was going to secure State Government funding for any work in the area.
