Options Investigation into Preston Beach Foreshore Access Improvements


Robyn Clarke, MLA, has secured $100,000 to assist in the development of improved, inclusive beach access at Preston Beach.


Improved access is for non-vehicular users, being people of all abilities walking to, or viewing Preston beach. The aim is for inclusive participation of all ages and abilities, in support of the Shire’s Disability and Access Plan and the State Government’s commitment to Preston Beach improvements. Both residents and visitors to Preston Beach are expected to benefit.


The aim of the project is to provide:

  • All abilities access
  • Ocean views
  • Space to stand and sit
  • Easy walk from the beach carpark


A group of interested Preston Beach residents has worked with the Shire of Waroona by meeting on site to explore the options available to meet the proposed outcomes of the project.


Initial assessment has been carried out on achieving these outcomes with the following options on the table:



You are welcome to provide your feedback through the following link by 4.00pm Monday 5 June 2023


Feedback will go to local member Robyn Clarke MLA and to the Council for consideration. Council’s deliberations will factor public preference, risks and ongoing costs to manage and maintain.


Environmental, coastal risk, heritage, native title and overall cost assessments will then be undertaken for the project to determine whether any fatal flaws exist in the options before a final decision is made.  


Thank you for your feedback!
