Barwon Heads Caravan Park Staged Works Project
Barwon Coast is currently seeking planning approval from the City of Greater Geelong for a series of construction projects. These projects will occur in and around the Barwon Heads Caravan Park and the Barwon Coast Office which is located on Jetty Rd in Barwon Heads. We are calling this ‘The Barwon Heads Caravan Park Staged Works Program’.
The Works Program consists of 16 distinct sub-projects of varying size and complexity. It is proposed that they will be undertaken over the next five years as funds become available. The works will improve safety, functionality and amenity in various ways.
Two of these projects funded by the Victorian State Government are set to directly benefit the Barwon Heads Football and Netball Club and include the installation of new lights for the netball courts, new coaches’ boxes, a scoreboard and behind-goal netting for the football oval.
We have prepared a detailed Cultural Heritage Management Plan (CHMP) which will guide all works. We have also planned the works to minimise impacts on vegetation and will provide an appropriate offset for impacted habitat loss. A biodiversity report and assessment has been prepared and can be downloaded from the program website.
Project information will be posted to www.barwoncoast.com.au/bhcpworks

Barwon Heads Seawall Reconstruction Project
Our guests love to wander along the Barwon Heads Promenade towards the beautiful Barwon Bluff.
The Barwon Heads Timber Seawall which supports the promenade was first built in the 1930s and is in need of repair. The area to be repaired is adjacent to a small area of the Barwon Heads Caravan Park. Guests who stay during the time of the construction works may be subject to some noise and sections of the promenade will be blocked off. The construction works are starting within the next week (Aug 27th onwards) and it is anticipated they will be completed by the end of October 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience during this time, but believe it will be minimal.
Further information on the project can be found on Barwon Coast's website.
If you have any concerns about the works please give our friendly staff a call on 5254 1115

Trail 33W signpost to Stephens Parade now open
Barwon Coast has for a number of years promoted the provision of safer access from Barwon Heads to 13th Beach both on road and off road.
Following upon community feedback to the December 2010 Trail proposal Barwon Coast resolved to proceed with the trail from beach access 33W Signpost to the turning bowl in Stephens Parade. The proposed track to the Surf Club from 33W was put on hold until the outcomes of the multi agency investigations into pedestrian, cyclist and vehicle safety on 13th Beach Rd were completed. These investigations are ongoing.
Application was subsequently made to the Department of Environment and Primary Industries for Coastal Management Act consent for the trail from 33W to Stephens Parade noting that the trail generally follows the direction of the existing informal trails. Such consent was received and Barwon Coast then applied for an obtained a Planning Permit from the City of Greater Geelong.
As part of the Coastal Management Act consent Barwon Coast has developed an approved Vegetation Management Plan (Net Gain) for the coastal dunes.
Brochures and maps available from a number of shops around both towns.
