Dicky Beach Precinct Plan

  • 02 Apr 2019

The Dicky Beach Precinct Plan[3040KB] was adopted at council's Ordinary Meeting on 10 November 2016. Since then, council has been finalising the design as well as securing funds for the project through its Capital Works Program. 


The Dicky Beach Precinct Plan was developed in response to the partial removal of the SS Dicky wreck in 2015. The purpose of the plan is to define the long term vision for the area and help identify the future location of interpretive displays that acknowledge and preserve the wreck's heritage values and significance as a cultural and iconic landmark.

Key design outcomes

  • Define the long term vision for the foreshore.
  • Develop the precinct's identity to support and distinguish this important local centre.
  • Maximise the recreation, social, cultural and economic opportunities within the Dicky Beach precinct.
  • Create a safe and usable precinct area that is high quality, comfortable, safe, accessible and inviting.
  • Incorporating interpretive initiatives that reference the SS Dicky along with the holiday making and recreational heritage of the site.
  • Improve the connectivity, open space, recreation and play, social gatherings and arrival experience.

Community engagement

Council invited the community to have their say on the design of the new skate park at Dicky Beach. The online survey closed 29 March 2019.

Where to from here

The Dicky Beach Precinct Plan presents a 20-year plus vision with a number of key outcomes that can be delivered through a staged implementation process over the short, medium and long term.

The staged implementation of the precinct plan will occur over a number of years subject to available funding. Council will actively seek grant funding from various sources to assist in delivering the plan in consolidated stages and condensed time frames.

Information on the current implementation and staging is available for download[1434KB]. This is based on the current 2018 adopted 10 Year Capital Works Program and is subject to an annual budget endorsement which may result in changes.
Updates on the implementation of the precinct plan will be made available on council's website.
