Colac Otway Shire Council adopted the Colac Otway Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy for Apollo Bay in June 2019 . The strategy identifies the need for a new public toilet block in Pascoe Street, Apollo Bay, to service locals and visitors, including tourists arriving by bus. This has been identified as a short term priority to deliver.
Colac Otway Shire Council’s Services & Operations and Environment teams are working with our Flying-fox Relocation Project Manager to develop a Colac Botanic Gardens Flying-fox Relocation Management Plan.
The main aim of the Strategy is to:- provide a current, evidence based Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy, and- outline the infrastructure priorities and traffic management strategies that are urgently required within the Great Ocean Road Region.
