Draft Concept Design - Replacement Jetty

The Draft Concept Design for a Replacement Jetty has been released for a 21 day public commentary period. The Draft was developed by H+H Architects, following initial stakeholder consultation and a review of all existing information and consultation about the Esperance Tanker Jetty and Replacement Jetty. 

The draft concept would comprise three different jetty bent types including an historic section that references the Old Tanker Jetty design, plus a long concrete fishing jetty that terminates in a wide Jetty Head at the seaward end, with a dive platform below. The length of the proposed design will have a steel balustrade on one side, and a traditional timber balustrade on the other, with a mixture of timber and concrete decking, inlaid with a steel track that interprets the original railway line. The jetty structure will have raked piles for its length and will feature a fish-cleaning station, bench seating and visitor shelters, as well as interpretative nodes that honour the history of the old Tanker Jetty.

You can read more information in the full Draft Concept Design Report and an information sheet.

You can complete a feedback form and return it to the Shire via email shire@esperance.wa.gov.au, delivered to the Shire of Esperance, PO Box 507, Esperance WA 6450 or in person to the Shire of Esperance Administration building, Windich Street. 

Please take the time to complete the Draft Concept Design Survey. Submissions due by 4pm, Friday 21 September 2018.
