Commence development of Master Plan
Feedback process for Draft Master Plan
Review of feedback and amendments period
The East Wynyard Foreshore Master Plan will set a clear vision for the future management and beautification of the area. By developing a Master Plan, the Waratah-Wynyard Council will gain greater understanding of the community’s expectations of the reserve, to help inform what work might be needed in the reserve.
The reserve is recognised as being a key part of the community, particularly for its use for general recreation (walking, running and bicycling) and for being the home of the foreshore market. The reserve is typically the first parkland seen when entering the Wynyard township from the east.
The proposed Master Plan area is highlighted in red by the above map. Please note the imagery overlay used is not current but provides an indication of the area.
The Master Plan is intended to cover the area from the western boardwalk through to the eastern end near the Rotary Park Playground. It will only cover land currently managed by the Council.
The Master Plan will be developed with multiple community engagement touchpoints. The first consultation process is to enable interested community members to provide Council with their thoughts and ideas about the area. Submissions received from the community will build upon earlier planning for the reserve and all feedback will be considered to help form the Master Plan.
Another opportunity will be offered for the public to provide feedback on the draft plan, before its final adoption in early 2021.
If you’re interested in letting Council know your thoughts and ideas, you can do so by using one of the following methods prior to November 3, 2020:
- Complete the feedback form below
- Participate in this online survey
- Email Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Send a letter addressed to Projects, Waratah-Wynyard Council, PO Box 168 Wynyard 7325
- Complete a short paper-based survey that can be found in participating local businesses commencing October 12.
The Plan will set a clear vision for the future beautification and management of the area. It provides Council with a set of guidelines that addresses any safety concerns and community expectations around how the reserve is intended to be used and what infrastructure might support this. Future improvements to the area can then be planned based on the Master Plan.
Council will be asking for input into the Master Plan during October 2020. Individuals must provide their feedback in writing through an online feedback form, online survey, email, in writing or by completing a short paper-based survey at local participating businesses. Another opportunity for feedback will be offered when a draft Master Plan has been developed and is released to the public. This is predicted to occur around February 2021.
