Winchelsea Shelter - Project Update

Thank you to community members who recently provided feedback on the Winchelsea Mud Hut Renewal.

The much-loved shelter in the Barwon River Gathering Space – which is closed due its failing structure – was scheduled to be replaced in January 2023. However we have become aware that microbats are inside the existing shelter which requires investigation.

We have also received additional community input which we have taken on board, through a petition received at the Surf Coast 

We are committed to working with community members on the next steps for a suitable replacement for the mud hut.

We will run further community engagement in early 2023, with opportunities on how you can have your say to be promoted in The Winchelsea Star and through Council communications channels. Feedback will help us present options to Council on how the new structure will look.

If you have any queries regarding the project above please send them to:
