Have your say on Middle Brighton Pier

Thursday 23 March, 2017

Parks Victoria is seeking public feedback on a draft concept plan to upgrade a section of Middle Brighton Pier after regular monitoring identified the middle section of the pier, which was built in 1938, will require replacement within the next few years.

The concept plan will focus on the replacement of the deteriorated 1938 section of the pier, reducing wave pressure and improving access to the outer section of the breakwater for both pedestrians and ongoing maintenance of the pier.

“The Middle Brighton Pier upgrade will be undertaken in stages and Parks Victoria is keen for the community to have input into the draft concept plan which will guide the pier upgrade,” said Parks Victoria District Manager Graeme Davis.

“The 1938 section of Middle Brighton Pier is coming towards the end of its practical life span and needs to be replaced to ensure the pier continues to service the community for future generations,”

“We’ve already conducted some initial research to capture community perceptions and feedback about the pier including engaging with key stakeholder groups earlier this year. These stakeholders have provided some preliminary input into issues and opportunities and we want to make sure the concept plan represents the views of the wider community,”

Middle Brighton Pier is a popular public pier which provides views over Port Phillip and plays host to a range of recreation, including promenading, yachting, fishing and swimming. The pier is also located along the Bay Trail, one of Melbourne’s most well-used walking and cycling trails.

Kellogg Root and Brown Pty Ltd have been engaged to undertake the design work.

The opportunity to provide feedback on the draft concept plan will be open until Friday 21 April 2017.

For more information about the Middle Brighton Pier draft concept plan and details on how to provide feedback, call 13 1963, email MiddleBrightonPier@parks.vic.gov.au or visit www.parks.vic.gov.au/middlebrightonpier
