Horseshoe Bay Reserve Masterplan (HBRM) Review and Update

Consultation has concluded

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 – PUBLIC EXHIBITION PERIOD 14 DAYS closing 6 September!

After an extensive engagement process the Draft Horseshoe Bay Reserve Masterplan was presented to Council on 20 August. It was resolved that the draft plan be placed on public exhibition for a period of 14 days for further community input, and that the final plan be presented to the 17 September 2019 Council meeting to be adopted.

We are now seeking your submissions into the draft plan through the Public Exhibition Submission tab below

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 and the feedback can be found HERE

Following the Catch-Up, we made the adopted 2014 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. Two community workshop was held on 12 December 2018, and 4 April 2019, two online engagement periods were conducted along with onsite walking tours with over 200 people present.

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

KEY STAGES

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

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. The draft designs were also made available on this site with feedback closing 6 May.
