Puckridge Park Redevelopment
The Bushland Park has outstanding views over the City and Boston Bay and has been maintained for almost 50 years by dedicated members of the Rotary Club of Port Lincoln. The park is loved by many in the community and its redevelopment must be sensitive to the past but simultaneously improved for greater activation with secured conservation for vegetation (remnant in particular) and fauna that call the park home.
Rotary approached Council for assistance to further develop the Park in 2018 and agreed to fund the concept design phase of the Puckridge Park Redevelopment Project.
This project is an example of Council and Rotary working together to ensure we achieve a sustainable park redevelopment that promotes and protects the park for future generations.
On Monday 19 October 2020 Council adopted the Puckridge Park Concept Plan and Community Consultation Report.
In December 2019 and January 2020 Council and Rotary Club of Port Lincoln sought community feedback on the proposed Concept Design for redevelopment of Puckridge Park.
The Consultation Report adopted by Council in October 2020 summarised the community process and the main themes and concerns raised in community feedback, together with Council's responses. The Concept Plan will help guide the staged redevelopment over the coming years.
Council has budgeted $45,000 in the 2020/2021 year to proceed with the next phase of detailed design work. This will entail further consultation with the community.
