Dunsborough Foreshore Officially Reopens

Both residents and visitors to the south west are set to enjoy amazing new and updated facilities after Dunsborough foreshore was officially reopened by Busselton mayor Ian Stubbs during a ceremony last Tuesday evening.

The news article “Dunsborough foreshore official opening” has full details on this story. It says the following: “The event drew a large gathering, which included the whole Busselton council and its CEO Mike Archer, State Government MPs Troy Buswell, Colin Holt and Barry House and the chamber’s president Louis De Chiera and members.”

The project, which has been funded by the WA government as part of the Royalties for Regions program, was as initiative of the city and the Dunsborough Yallingup Chamber of Commerce.

Mayor Stubbs appreciated the joint efforts of various organisations that allowed the Dunsborough foreshore to be converted into an impressive seaside venue for both tourists and locals alike. The completion of the project will make a huge difference to the south west region.

One of the major objectives of the Dunsborough foreshore project is to alleviate the sense of congestion in and around the town, especially during peak holiday periods. The aim is to provide a sense of space by making use of the existing recreational space more effectively; offering additional parking and amenities; and designing routes for pedestrians and cyclists which link the foreshore with the town centre. However, in view of community feedback, all this was done in a way to ensure that Dunsborough’s unique south western charm is not compromised.

The WA government had announced to improve the amenities at Dunsborough foreshore in June 2011. The $5.1mn project, which also received a funding of $3.643mn from Royalties for Regions, is expected to create more employment by improving local facilities and adding to social, economic, cultural and recreational opportunities in the region.

While announcing the funding for the Dunsborough Foreshore project, Regional Development Minister Brendon Grylls┬ásaid, “This funding will help to improve pedestrian access and provide a corridor between the Dunsborough town centre and the foreshore as part of the $5.1mn Dunsborough foreshore project.”

“Improving the visual and pedestrian links between Dunsborough town centre and the beach will bring out the best of what Dunsborough has to offer,” he added.

The upgrading of the Dunsborough foreshore is also expected to add to the appeal of the region for tourists as well as locals.
