Sky Rig tourist proposal

Friday, 15 September 2017

We issued this response to the Geelong Advertiser’s query regarding the progress of the Sky Rig tourist proposal maintenance of Barry Lane, Wallington.

The Waterfront Master Plan, adopted in 2011, identified that the Western Beach boat yard could be used as a tourist development opportunity.

Following an expression of interest process seeking development proposals for Western Beach, the City entered into an agreement to progress the Sky Rig concept.

However, after consultation with the State Government, it was agreed to suspend any further development of the Sky Rig proposal until the business case and master plan for the proposed Convention and Exhibition Centre are finalised.

This has been communicated to the Sky Rig applicants.
