    Thank you to the people we met at the drop in session on 9 February. It was great to discuss the trial with you.

    Closure of the concrete bridge was an issue that was commonly raised by people who came to the drop in session. We'd like to update you on what's happening down there.

    Demolition of the bridge commences today.

    Once demolition is completed the site will remain fenced off for approximately six weeks until the steel is manufactured and delivered to the site. Installation work will then commence.

    It is anticipated that the project will be completed by late May 2019.

    If you have any further questions about the bridge, give us a call on 1300 434 434.

    We are seeking your feedback about whether or not to establish a permanent dog off-leash area in Avalon Beach Reserve.

    In response to community engagement undertaken in May and June 2017 Council resolved on 8 August 2017 to establish a trial dog off-leash area in Avalon Beach Reserve.


    In February 2018 fencing, signage, a bin and tap were installed at Avalon Beach Reserve to create a trial off leash area. From February 2018 to July 2018 Council sought community feedback on the trial. An analysis of the feedback received was presented at the Council meeting held 18 December 2018.


    At this Council meeting it was resolved to delay a decision on the off-leash area for three months, pending further community engagement.
