Beresford Foreshore Activation Expression of Interest

The Beresford Foreshore is a treasured community asset and a primary playground for the community.

The City is seeking proposals from interested parties to provide services and facilities to the public for the enhancement and activation of the Beresford Foreshore area to enhance their visit to the Foreshore.

The effective use of the Beresford Reserves will result in a space that is people focused, not building focused, and promotes an active and passive recreation area that also promotes health and wellbeing.

The deadline to submit an Expression of Interest is Thursday 25 October 2018.
