Reviewing feedback


What's proposed?

We are proposing to replace the Marine Rescue Building at Rowland Reserve, Bayview, with a new single story building in the same location.

The building was built over two decades ago using re-purposed demountable structures and is now showing ongoing signs of dilapidation.

We have worked closely with key stakeholders to help develop a design that meets their current needs while also meeting Council's standards.

To ensure the requirements for Emergency Operations and accessibility legislation are met, the design will require a slight increase of floor space from 116sqm to 180sqm. Please note that it will remain a single level building.

The existing external small storage shed to the west will be relocated to the east, and remain within Council’s depot. This is not expected to have any affect on surrounding residential properties.

This project is jointly funded by NSW Government and Northern Beaches Council.

‘Marine Rescue New South Wales’ will still maintain occupancy of the building.
