The Master Plan for Broadbeach Estate in Inverloch has been developed in consultation with the Bass Coast Shire Council and a team of expert consultants including Architects and Landscape Architects, Ecologists, Civil and Services Engineers, Hydrologists and Archeologists. The roads and laneways will provide an informal and relaxed streetscape character, with a strong presence of landscape providing the dominant character within the road reserve.
The Master Plan
The vision for Broadbeach Inverloch is of a development that is responsive towards its coastal environment. All lots within the development will provide contemporary, high-quality curated architectural and landscape outcomes that respond to the bushland and landscape qualities of the coastal context.
The recommendations in this guide seek to achieve this by stipulating the approach to the design of buildings and associated landscape.
These are based on guidelines set out under the Victorian Coastal Strategy. This includes the Siting and Design Guidelines for structures of the Victorian coast, which identifies principles including:
The 15.5 hectare site is located at the eastern end of the Inverloch Township, approximately 1.2 kilometres to the south-east of the Bass Highway and sits adjacent to the Anderson’s Inlet foreshore with direct beach access.
Broadbeach is located between Little Screw Creek to the north, and Andersons Inlet to the south. The proximity of the site to Andersons Inlet gives it a distinct coastal estuarine landscape character.
Little Screw Creek runs to the Anderson Inlet and is periodically inundated with tidal and storm surge seawater making the northern wetland within the site saline. A significant Coastal Saltmarsh vegetation community is present to the north-east which is an important feeding ground for migratory birds, including the endangered Orange Bellied Parrot.
A dune remnant supporting mature Coastal Dune Scrub extends through the middle of the site, and is set aside as a conservation management zone.
The southern side of the site includes a linear wetland and perimeter landscape interface with the camping area along the foreshore.
The predominant vegetation includes Coast Banksia and Drooping Sheoak, with Sweet Bursaria dominant along the remnant dune.
