Feedback wanted on Erehwon Point access improvement in Cowes by 6 February 2023
Bass Coast Shire Council are undertaking consultation with the community to collate important local feedback on how we can improve access at Erehwon Point, Cowes.
From Lovers Walk to the Jetty Triangle, this precinct attracts local residents and visitors year-round. Yet council realised that the area has steep sections, stairs, plus narrow and disconnected pathways which make this beautiful spot inaccessible for many members of the community.
Council is undertaking consultation with the community to see how to improve access to Erehwon Point precinct , through and within this area for everyone
Community feedback wanted
We want to understand how both residents and visitors currently use the precinct, and how you would like to use it in future. Your feedback is especially invaluable to this improvement project if you currently avoid the area due to issues with limited pathway access, connections or safety concerns.
Members of council's Access and Inclusion Advisory Committee examined the area in-person onsite, and now seek feedback on the challenges of the current pathway network from all users. The community engagement process will be open from 2 December 2022 to 6 February 2023, to collect feedback on pathway access, connections and safety concerns from various stakeholder groups, community members, visitors and organisations.
