We sincerely thank everyone who has provided input into the development of the Goolwa Beach Car Park & Surrounds Masterplan over the last two years. Your contributions have made a significant difference to the development of the Masterplan. The Masterplanwas endorsed by Council at its meeting of 6 February 2017.
The aim of the masterplan is to guide future development and sustainable management of the Goolwa Beach carpark and surrounding area over the next 20 years. Apart from the broader community, there are many specific user groups with different interests and expectations for this important part of the coastal environment. The masterplan balances the many social, cultural, environmental and economic considerations to ensure that we plan for sustainable development and a safe and enjoyable experience for locals and visitors alike.
Almost 130 written submissions were received during the final round of community consultation. In response to feedback received, several changes were made to the recommendations contained in the draft masterplan before it was finalised, including:
Next steps include further consultation with traditional owners and stakeholders, securing funds, and a detailed design stage. So, you shouldn’t expect to see any immediate activity on site – it is likely that the masterplan will be implemented gradually over the next five or so years.
The proposed surf life saving development will be considered in the near future, as part of a formal Development Assessment process. The development will be subject to all of the usual notifications and referrals, including a public notification period.
