Project Summary:

The roof of the iconic Indented Head Community Hall is being replaced in November / December this year. 

Our member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, has successfully sought a State Government Grant which is being supported by Bellarine Bayside Foreshore Committee of Management to fund the project. 

The roof has served its purpose well since the building was constructed in the 1950’s but it has now reached its end of life and requires replacement.  Along with the roof, the guttering, upper level wall cladding and eaves will also be replaced as part of the project.  A licensed Class B asbestos remover will follow strict guidance from Worksafe and the Occupational Health and Safety Act during the project to protect the public and employees. The contractor is very experienced in the removal of asbestos having worked on a number of similar asbestos removal projects.

The works will commence on the 12th November and will extend through to mid-December.  Public access to the hall and construction site will be not be permitted during construction.  The hall will be open and safe for use for the 2018 State election on 24th November.  Access along the trail during construction will be restricted but still possible.  We appreciate your understanding.

We have an obligation to respect the hall’s heritage value, therefore a planning permit was required.  The Planning Department’s heritage advisors have stipulated the new materials to be as close to ‘like for like’ as possible.  The roof will be corrugated Colorbond Dune, guttering Colorbond Shale Grey and the cladding Shale Grey cement sheeting.

Congratulations to Lisa Neville, the Indented Head Community Association and Bellarine Bayside for supporting this worthwhile project for the community of Indented Head.
