Happiness is a sandy beach
Improvements to Sandy Beach at Lake Sambell in Beechworth will start on Tuesday 14 March with construction of two retaining walls.
"The walls will ensure the beach remains sandier for longer -- and help prevent the lake silting up -- and will provide seating and convenience to swimmers and sight-seers," the Mayor, Cr Jenny O'Connor, said today. "And we will bring in more sand to the beach once the walls are in place."
"We have been discussing how the improvements should proceed with interested residents, and have incorporated many excellent suggestions from them into the original design."
The Sandy Beach improvements are an important part of the Lake Sambell Master Plan which was adopted by Council in 2015 after extensive Community Consultation.
"As well as offering many ideas for consideration, members of the public twice met onsite with Council officers and engineers in February to clarify how the improvements would enhance the appearance and friendliness of the entire area," Cr O'Connor said.
