USE OF YACHT CLUB BUILDING: Council
views on site, or online. If the
Club activities are contracting,
perpetuating its building - which has
concrete cancer - is not necessarily
desirable. Including additional
non-water-dependent uses, possibly by
rebuilding it higher, would contravene
of Principles of the Victorian
Coastal Strategy, as marine
research and education does not
need a foreshore site. Beaumaris
Campus site awaits renewal works,
it has much more land area, and MESAC
there would better match its educational
purpose. Peak visitor use in school
holidays would be better there than on
the crowded foreshore.
Public transport in Beaumaris passes the Beaumaris Campus, but not the Beaumaris Yacht Club. Bus routes 822 and 925 together provide access to the Beaumaris Campus site from each of Sandringham, Cheltenham and Mentone railway stations.
