10 Apr: Bondi Pavilion Restoration & Conservation Project

Bondi Pavilion Restoration & Conservation Project

Our proposal for the restoration of the iconic Bondi Pavilion has reached a major milestone. The development application will soon be open for public and stakeholder input and a period of 28 days is set aside for this next phase of community consultation.

The DA documentation can be viewed via the DA Tracker on our website using reference number DA-105/2019.

The DA will be assessed by independent assessment officers, heritage consultants and the Office of Environment and Heritage. This process is likely to take at least six months.

I would like to thank everyone who has worked hard to get the project to where it is today. Our aim is to start construction February 2020 straight after the peak summer period.

The detail designs have been guided by the Bondi Pavilion Conservation Management Plan and extensive community feedback.

The key features of the restoration include replacing the roof tiles with those similar to the original terracotta tiles, additional amenities on the Northern Courtyard, accessible from the internal courtyard and the walkway between the Pavilion and the Surf Lifesaving Club, a tourism office and a flexible cultural space for exhibitions and alike via the Bondi Story Room.
