Coogee Beach upgrade

Consultation has concluded

30 November 2018

Thanks for your input. Following consultation in November, we have asked three builders to quote on upgrading the cafe, with work to be completed by March 2019.

See the diagrams with the design for upgrading Coogee Beach cafe and surrounds.

The City, in consultation with the community, has identified opportunities to address:

  • Parking issues, school bus drop off facilities and improved alignment of the cycling route

  • Security issues affecting the cafe

  • Incorporating the reserve's interesting and colourful history into the design of the park's features.

  • Improved beach and cafe access for people with disability

  • Ways in which the café might be made more useful – beach lockers and hire of beach equipment such as umbrellas, paddle boards and beach chairs.

The cafe is owned by the City and leased to a private operator. The first two stages of the upgrade have been completed with power lines placed underground and a new car park built at the nearby surf club.

Our Landscape Architect was at the cafe on 11/12 August to talk to residents about a planned $1.2 million upgrade as part of the Coogee Beach Masterplan. He also attending several community meetings to seek feedback. You also provided feedback here online.

Works will be staged to minimise disruption to beach goers and café visitors.

Thank you for your input.
