The City of Melville is asking the community to get involved in planning the replacement of the Mount Henry Jetty following a routine audit which indicated the northern end was no longer safe for the public and forcing a partial closure of the jetty.
Works on the jetty are expected to commence in October 2022 and the new jetty opened by early 2023.
City of Melville Mayor the Hon. George Gear JP said the Mount Henry Jetty was originally built in the 1970s to support infrastructure works on the Mount Henry Bridge and has been much loved by the community since.
“We would like the community to share their feedback via an online survey about how they currently use the jetty and any key accessibility features or changes they would like to see.
“With the communities’ help, we can determine the size of replacement jetty and what features should be incorporated in the design.
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the partial closure of the jetty.
The survey will close at 4.00pm on Thursday, 13 May 2021.
