Foreshore, CBD & Marina Precinct Master Plans

In December 2018 the community came together through Community Co-Design opportunities to consider the future master planning of three critical precincts within the City of Port Lincoln - the Foreshore, Central Business District and Marina.

Jensen Plus urban design professionals were contracted by Council to take the views expressed by the community and craft a draft master plan for all three precincts and a more detailed foreshore concept. The community were asked to look at the reflection of their input from the early engagement co-design process in the draft master plan and have their further say on the proposals put forward during the month of October and November 2019.

The plan has had input from the community, industry, neighbouring councils, Regional Development Australia Whyalla and Eyre Peninsula and the South Australian Tourism Commission.

About the Draft Plan

The Draft Master Plan is a reflection of the community's collective efforts to co-design during the early engagement work commenced in late 2018 and early 2019.  The plans are not the singular views of Council or Jensen Plus consultants.

The drawings in the Draft Master plan are impressions - to reflect ideas of beautification or activity creation.  They are not accurate detailed designs.  These will come later on once the Draft Master Plan is finalised and we tackle one node or street at at time.

The Draft Master Plan must administer an urban plan for the whole community and greater Eyre Peninsula region and not just one sector, demographic, business, individual event or visitors alone.  This is the complexity that a local government has in juggling different community values and desires.

Striking a balance will never be simple or come without some compromise.

Have your say

The Draft Master Plan was open for public consultation from Friday 27 September to Friday 11 November 2019 and was then extended to Friday 29 November 2019. 

The public were invited to provide their feedback to Council a variety of ways:

  • Online survey
  • Online submission form
  • Written submission
  • A Community Pop Up stall/drop in at the Centre on Liverpool Street was held on Tuesday 12 November 2019 for the public to come and chat with the Council staff and learn more and share their thoughts on the Draft Master Plan.
  • A Q & A public Forum was held at the Ravendale Community Sports Centre on Thursday 14 November 2019 from 6pm to 7.30pm to meet the Council Master Team and hear from guest speakers.

Next steps

Council administration staff are currently working on finalising the Draft Masterplan document after analysing the data from the 321 submissions received.  A final Consultation Report and Implementation Strategy is scheduled to be presented for adoption at the July Ordinary Council Meeting.
