Open Space Strategy

The City of Port Lincoln in collaboration with URPS Consultants, has developed a Draft Open Space Strategy and invited the community to make comment on the Draft Strategy between Thursday 16 August 2018 to 5pm on Friday 7 September 2018. 

The Draft Strategy defines Council's future management and improvements of public open space across the City.  

Open space plays an important role in meeting the environmental and social needs of the community and provides opportunities for conservation, public health, improved amenity, water management, transport and access linkages and supports the visitor economy.
