Open Space Strategy

The City of Port Lincoln is preparing an Open Space Strategy that will define the Council's future management and improvement of public open space across the City.  The Strategy will ensure that public open space is managed and developed in a coordinated and sustainable way, to achieve maximum community and environmental benefits. 

Over the years Council has steadily invested in improving the City's parks, reserves, sports grounds and public spaces such as the multi-stage Heritage Trail development, Whait Reserve, Wellington Square and Centenary Oval. 

The community was invited to make a submission on the Open Space Strategy Discussion Paper (Open Space Strategy Discussion Paper without appendices, Appendices and Maps - North Precinct, South Precinct and Central Precinct) to help develop the plan for our future open space to meet the needs of the community, ratepayers and visitors from 3 November 2016 to 5 December 2016. 

The community also had the opportunity to speak with consultants from Urban & Regional Planning Solutions to ask questions, make comment and find out more about the Open Space Strategy Discussion Paper on Thursday 24 November at the Nautilus Arts Centre Foyer and Friday 25 November 2016 at the Train Playground on New West Road as part of the official opening of the Heritage Trail.   

What Happens Next

A report is being prepared on the submissions received and will be considered and adopted into the Draft Open Space Strategy to go out for final public comment mid to late January 2017.
