We're excited to announce the first stage of the Masterplan is kicking off, with an upgrade to the facilities at the Forster Ocean Baths.
Thanks to funding of $200,000 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund and additional Council funds of $250,000, we’ll be upgrading the large shaded barbeque area, public amenities / change rooms and outdoor shower near Forster’s Ocean Baths.
Draft designs were developed in keeping with the Masterplan, and were open for community review and feedback during April 2019.
If you would like to see how the feedback provided was used to influence the design elements please visit our feedback page to view the detailed report and final design plans.
Works will commence from Monday 12 August in two stages, with completion planned for early 2020.
Stage 1: August - December 2019
During Stage One, the replacement of the toilets, showers and change rooms will take place, with the existing buildings being fenced off until early December. Works will continue through the October school holidays.
The pool and barbecue shelter will remain open during this period with portable toilets on site. Our aim is to minimise disruption to the local community and visitors during this period.
Stage 2: Early 2020
After the January 2020 school holidays are over, work will recommence to demolish the old barbecue shelter and rebuild a brand new shelter. This area will be fenced off, but the ocean baths and new amenities will be open and accessible.
