Works to rejuvenate the Suttons Beach pavilion and surrounding park land have taken a crucial next step in a long-term project by City of Moreton Bay.
Mayor Peter Flannery said the works will pave the way for future improvements at the Redcliffe Peninsula precinct.
“A Development Application for demolition of the existing pavilion building has now been approved,” he said.
“As part of City of Moreton Bay’s long-term plans to revitalise the Suttons Beach precinct, Council will now look to finalise procurement of a contractor to undertake demolition works and prepare the site for rejuvenation and future development.
“Council is also investigating a design competition to inform future developments.
“You’ve told us your preference is for a building style that balances art deco and contemporary design and we’re working to marry those elements in the rejuvenated precinct.”
Cr Karl Winchester said the local community could look forward to the precinct’s new future.
“The pavilion at Suttons Beach has been an icon for our laidback beachside lifestyle for many years,” he said.
“We’re committed to ensuring a new Pavilion incorporates salvaged elements from the past while also standing out as an iconic site into the future.
“Council has and will continue listening to community feedback at every step of this process.”
Recent investigations have confirmed numerous, complex, extensive defects that impact the existing Suttons Beach Pavilion building’s structural integrity.
“This independent investigation recommended that renovation is not practical given the significant remediation and rectification works required,” Mayor Flannery said.
“When Council discovered this, we worked closely with community to determine the type of building and facilities community would like to see in the area.
“With the next step of this process being demolition of the defective building, Council will work with the demolition contractor to salvage and repurpose some of the original bricks if this can be practically and reasonably achieved.
“We’ll continue to keep the community informed at all major milestones along this project’s journey, as we work to revitalise Suttons Beach, allowing a new generation to enjoy its place in the community.”
