Support accessibility modifications to beach jetty

The jetty is on Sorrento Foreshore on the Mornington Peninsula in front of ‘The Baths’ beachfront restaurant.  It’s a wonderful place that should be experienced by everyone, not just able-bodied people. As someone with a quadriplegic son, I understand how important it is to have community spaces that are inclusive and accessible for everyone. Something that a lot of us take for granted.

The primary objection of the local Conservation group is the lowering of the jetty. They believe the proposed height of the jetty will make it difficult and inconvenient to walk under at high tide. At high-tide people will need to walk around the ramp, or they will need to walk slightly in the water if they wish to walk under the jetty.
