The Shire of Denmark has awarded Neo Civil the tender for the removal and reconstruction of the sea wall at Ocean Beach after securing $1.14 million in funding in July. The tender award represents a major milestone in the Ocean Beach redevelopment project. The Council are now tendering for wider redevelopment work at Ocean Beach. Denmark Surf Life Saving Club received the seal of approval in August to revamp its Ocean Beach clubhouse after securing a $1.14 million slice of funding from the Shire of Denmark’s Coastal Adaption and Protection grant application. The club previously applied unsuccessfully for $4 million in funding from the Building Better Regions Federal Government grant in 2021. Redevelopment in the area has been a pressing topic for the club since 2021 as the coastline it sits on is slowly eroding, causing damage to the club’s infrastructure and forcing temporary measures. That tender is expected to be considered at the ordinary council meeting on December 21 after applications close on December 6. The redevelopment of the sea wall and Ocean Beach are expected to be under way by February 2024 following the peak visitation period. Working closely with the Surf Club and contractors, the Shire says it will keep the community informed of progress at Ocean Beach during the work and provide information as early as possible about any potential disruptions or closures.
