​Stage 2 - Gravelly Beach Foreshore Project

The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) invites public submissions on the proposed Gravelly Beach Foreshore Stage 2 Project.  The West Tamar Council (WTC) is proposing this upgrade which delivers Stage 2, Precinct 2 of the Gravelly Beach Foreshore Master Plan.  This proposal includes:
  • A new rock wall and land reclamation opposite the shops to be used as a recreation area (~2,500m²)
  • Beach nourishment
  • Extending the current car parking areas to allow greater capacity for parking and walking to shops.
  • BBQ shelter and picnic node
  • Beach access (ramps & stairs)
  • Seawall repair
  • Connecting walkways to join carparks
  • Stormwater drainage improvements 
  • Opportunity for public art
The Reserve Activity Assessment, Level 3 and supporting specialist studies describe the proposed development, outline potential impacts to natural, cultural and recreational values and provides commitments to avoid or mitigate negative impacts. These reports were prepared in accordance with PWS advice.
