A MASTER plan for Sorrento will include a gateway to the ferry terminal and the main street, linking the town centre to the coastline with a “modern feel”.

Developed from a 2018 coastal and marine plan, the blueprint outlines the design of new all-abilities toilets with contemporary beachside amenities, new look cenotaph, and new boardwalk with picnic areas, shade structures and seating.

A grassed area will aim to provide “flexible use” of the space along with a footpath wide enough for shared use.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is inviting community feedback on the plan, which also includes planting native flora to complement the natural environment and “pay respect to the area’s history and culture”.

Community consultation closes 5pm, Monday 21 September.
