A Further $2.1 Million in Grant Funding Secured for Normanville Foreshore

Deputy Premier Vickie Chapman MP has announced that the District Council of Yankalilla has been awarded $2.1 million from the Marshall Liberal Government Open Spaces and Places for People Grant program for the Normanville Foreshore project.

The funding will go towards increased green space, a new family nature play area, a new plaza area and new beach interface including jetty mobility access and boardwalk reconfiguration and integration of the new Normanville Surf Life Saving Club & Kiosk building to the public realm.

Mayor Glen Rowlands said, “This is a major win for Council especially considering the pool of funds in this grant round was $22.3 million and we are to receive $2.1 million, there were 43 Councils who applied for funding with only 27 projects across 21 council areas being announced as successful”.

“The funding of $2,100,000 was leveraged with the Council committed contributions towards the Normanville Surf Lifesaving Club and Kiosk rebuild allowing us to bring forward the improvements and integration to the public spaces without committing more ratepayers funds”.

“The project makes a significant contribution to community inclusion by improving public access for people of all abilities through direct and indirect mobility access interventions”.

“The nature play element is provided as a family-friendly space and provides a destination for the winter period for the community”.

“The new plaza is a key element in providing for better connectivity of the foreshore, providing a transition from the Surf Life Saving Club & Kiosk to the green space and is a meeting place for the community and visitors”.

“Receiving the Open Spaces and Places for People grant now brings the secured external funding to a total of $6,800,500 towards the Foreshore Masterplan projects and we eagerly await the results of other funding opportunities we have applied for”, said Mayor Glen Rowlands.

Work continues on the Normanville Foreshore and Jetty Caravan Park Draft Masterplan which will be presented for consideration at the 15 June 2021 meeting of the Council. The plan will take into account all previous Council resolutions, including maintaining similar parking space numbers and green space areas.

The proposed funding for the draft Normanville Foreshore & Jetty Caravan Park Masterplan is as follows:

Normanville Surf Club




Normanville Kiosk *



Rear Entry to Surf Club/Kiosk
