Coastal projects on cards

There are currently around 20 projects costing $1.3m at Beachport which are earmarked for public money.

The oldest building owned by Wattle Range Council is located at Beachport and it will receive a $10,000 makeover according to the draft 2024/25 council budget.

The original St Nicholas Anglican Church is at least 150 years old and its timberwork needs attention.

After the erection of a new church in 1923, it served as a dressing room/supper room for the adjoining Institute for many years, until it was restored in 1975 by the Beachport National Trust.

The church restoration is one of the projects which are earmarked for funding in the coming financial year.

Others include the Beachport Museum firewall upgrade ($70,000), Beachport Visitor Information Centre interior design ($65,000), Beachport Museum timber beams renewal ($30,000), New Year’s Eve fireworks ($5,000), Southern Ocean Tourist Park site plan ($20,000), Heritage survey ($14,000), Giant Kites event ($5000), kerbing ($166,000), wastewater renewal works ($110,000), Foster Street footpath ($45,000), Bowman Scenic Drive road design ($236,000), foreshore irrigation renewal ($70,000), Beach Road car park upgrade ($55,000), boat ramp toilets ($4000), boat ramp dredging ($70,000) and renewal of groynes ($300,000).

Feedback is now invited on the Wattle Range Council’s draft 2024/25 Budget.

It provides an overview of the services, programs and strategic projects council plans to deliver to the community in the coming financial year.

Visit for a copy of the draft budget and information on how you can ‘have your say’.

Hard copies are also available from any of Council’s Offices or the Millicent Library.

Feedback is open until 5pm on June 21.

Verbal submissions can be made at a meeting of council held on June 25.

Contact Catherine Allen on 8733 0900 to register.
