Horseshoe Bay Reserve Masterplan (HBRM) Review and Update

Please note that the Caravan Park has been removed from the study area and will be managed under a separate Plan of Management

Have your say on the Draft Masterplans for the Horseshoe Bay Reserve

Thank you to everyone who provided online feedback and attended the community workshop on 12 December 2018. Your workshop feedback and online feedback has been collated, analysed and provided to the project team.

The project team and the Landscape Architect, Dan Plummer, have now developed draft designs which we are seeking community feedback on.

COMMUNITY WORKSHOP: Council ran a community workshop at South West Rocks Country Club from 5:30pm - 8:30pm on Thursday 4 April to gather detailed feedback into the drafts before developing finals that will go to Council for endorsement and onto public exhibition.

WALKING TOURS: Three 30 minute walking tours were conducted at Horseshoe Bay Reserve on Friday 5 April commencing from 8am.

COUNCIL INFORMATION STALL: Council also held an information stall at Horseshoe Bay Reserve on Friday 5 April from 8am - 11am.

ONLINE SURVEY: An online community Survey is now open until 6 May

*********************************************************************************************

Background

The Masterplan is about making the connection between buildings, social settings, and their surrounding environments. The Master Plan will provide Council, business, government stakeholders and the community the opportunity to consider a range of issues affecting the HBR such as infrastructure and recreational spaces usage now and into the future.

In 2014 Council adopted the current Masterplan and since that time there has been ongoing community feedback into this plan.

In May 2018, Council held a Community Catch-Up in South West Rocks.

Following the Catch-Up, we made the adopted Masterplan available for public comment. After receiving community feedback, Council decided to further review the Master Plan to ensure it meets the contemporary needs of the community. A community workshop was held on 12 December 2018 with over 100 people present. An online survey also captured community input.

Council has engaged landscape architecture firm Plummer and Smith to review the existing Masterplan and develop a Draft Masterplan 2019 for the reserve.

Stage 1 has been a review of previous feedback, including themed feedback after the 2018 Community Catch up at South West Rocks, site visits, observation and discussions with individuals

Stage 2 is gathering community input through this online engagement and the community workshop

WE ARE UP TO HERE >>> Stage 3

- Draft redesign and a second round of engagement with a second workshop on 4 April 2019 and walking tours on site on 5 April

- 5 April Draft Masterplan 2019 available on this site , with an online SURVEY closing 6 May

Stage 4 will be final designs available for further comment through a formal public exhibition period

Stage 5 will be a report presented to Council with recommendations

Please get involved!

Thanks for your interest and time.

Have a great day!
