For the latest information on current face-to-face services and COVID restrictions at Hobsons Bay City Council, see the link below and stay safe.
15 March 2021
Council is upgrading the Altona Beach Precinct as works continue with the urban renewal of Pier Street from Queen Street to the Esplanade, the upgrade of Weaver Reserve, the proposed closure of the Esplanade between Bent Street and Pier Street, a new beach entry to the main swimming beach at the bottom of Pier Street, raising of the seawall to accommodate sea level rise and storm surges associated with climate change, the realignment of the shared trail to behind the seawall and a new pedestrian beach access between McBain Street and Correa Street near Webb Street.
Alongside all these works, Parks Victoria are also looking to upgrade the Altona Pier. You can keep informed of the status of the Altona Pier at www.engage.vic.gov.au
All these projects interconnect and it is important to look at them in perspective to ensure what Council constructs works for the community, local groups, visitors, and Council. There are certain infrastructure items that we must achieve to ensure the ongoing protection of both public and private assets along our foreshore. However, there are also quite a few items that you can provide input into to help shape this important public space.
The final concept plans for the Pier Street Stage 4 and Weaver Reserve are now available for public comment. The community is invited to provide feedback on these final concept plans over a four week period from Wednesday 24 March until Wednesday 21 April 2021.
For approximate construction dates for each of the projects please refer to the timeline on the right of the screen.
Members of the project team will be available to talk through the plans and answer any question you might have.

What is happening to the outdoor trading section between Blyth and Queen Streets?
This section of Pier Street was closed to vehicle traffic and outdoor dining implemented to ensure the economic viability of the Altona Shopping Precinct during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Council understands that the traders and the community would like to see this continue in some form in the future. however, there are many considerations that need to be worked through before we determine what happens in this space. Council is consulting with the community on the Hobsons Bay Business has Heart Outdoors extended trading initiative. Click here to provide your feedback.
