Engagement Report

Storage solution on the horizon

The North Avalon Surfriders Association (NASA) approached Council with a proposal to build an extension to the existing beach amenities block at the north end of Avalon Beach to provide storage for their equipment.

This would meet NASA's general equipment storage needs for monthly competitions and regional events. Storage items would include: surf boards, marquee, tents, flags, tables, BBQ, and first aid equipment and trailer.

In May 2021 we exhibited a proposal to build the extension that would be approximately 27 sq. metres (which is about the size of a double garage) with the roofline and height aligned with existing amenities building.

We received 130 comments during the exhibition. Feedback indicated a high level of support for the storage shed with comments indicating time saving, safety, weather protection and convenience.

A small number of unsupportive comments were received, these reflected concern about parking in an already congested area, exclusive use and a more wholistic area upgrade be undertaken.
