June The Beast: Bondi Blueprint

Bondi Blueprint

Waverley Council is embarking on its largest civil infrastructure works program at Bondi Beach in almost a century.

Bondi Blueprint is my Council’s most significant commitment to making the beach a safer and better place for future generations of residents and visitors.

Over the next four years we will stage the delivery of $70 million worth of projects including the Pavilion restoration, new amenities at the southern end of Bondi Park, upgrades to Campbell Parade and Notts Avenue, repairs to the promenade, drainage and pool at North Bondi, and restoration of the Bondi Bathers Surf Lifesaving Club.

Bondi Pavilion Restoration & Conservation Project

Our development application for the restoration of the iconic Bondi Pavilion opened for public and stakeholder input in April.

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.

I would like to thank everyone who has worked hard to get the project to where it is today.

You can view the progress of the development application via the DA Tracker on our website using reference number DA-105/2019.
