Pier and Jetty Future Use

Project Overview

The pier and jetties in Hervey Bay are an important and well-loved feature of the Esplanade for residents and visitors.

Over many years there has been a lot of interest from community and businesses in relation to commercial and event activities on the pier and jetties.

In the past it was resolved that these activities were not permitted under our local laws due to restrictions and prohibitions on both commercial activities and other uses on the pier and jetties.

Recently Council has received renewed interest in the use of the pier and jetties for commercial and community acitivities & event use.

In response Council resolved to engage with the community at its January 2023 Meeting to obtain feedback on allowing potential commercial and community activities to be undertaken on or near the pier and jetties in Hervey Bay.

The survey closed 11:55pm - Monday 1 May 2023.

Support for community events on pier and jetties

Fraser Coast residents have expressed support for occasional community events on the Urangan Pier and Hervey Bay jetties if public access is not restricted, but are not in favour of permanent commercial activities and private events.
