Designs Unveiled For Cowes Jetty Triangle Redevelopment

Published on : Wednesday, January 10, 2018

indexCowes is set to be even more attractive to tourists and residents alike, with the Andrew Labor Government officially unveiling the concept designs for the Revitalisation of the Cowes Precinct Project.

Minister for Regional Development Jaala Pulford was in Cowes today to announce the Labor Government’s $1.8 million backing for the Bass Coast Shire Council project which will help grow the visitor economy, improve business confidence, and enhance community pride in Cowes.

It will transform the Jetty Triangle into a grass-terraced area for community events, festivals and markets. The new space will be an attractive and people-friendly space for everyone to enjoy.

A new transit centre will also be created to enable cars and coaches to move in and out of central Cowes more easily, and create 110 additional long-term car parks.

As well as benefiting locals, the revitalisation project will support the growing number of visitors coming to Phillip Island as a result of the major improvements to the nearby popular Penguin Parade.

The Government is investing $48.2 million in the development of the Phillip Island Nature Park Visitor Centre, which will boost tourism and create jobs.

The visitor economy is crucial to the future economic development of regional and rural Victoria and contributes $11.5 billion to the regional economy, generating 114,400 jobs.
