Port Lincoln City Council is moving ahead with its master plan project for the city’s precincts to meet the needs of user groups and visitors.

The council is putting out to consultants its plans for the central business district (CBD), foreshore and marina precincts.

The plan will establish the future potential for each district, their respective roles within the wider city context and how to develop linkages between them.

Consultants will explore elements including use of open spaces, public/street art installations, beautification and opportunities for increased tourism.

Council chief executive officer Stephen Rufus said the council would aim to have the plans out for public consultation by December.

Councillor Faye Davis said she was concerned about only a brief mention of the fishing industry in the marina plan, relating to the relocation of the loading/unloading and refueling of the fishing fleet to the proposed wharf at Proper Bay.

She said she would like to see more about how to meet the needs of the local fishing industry.

“In the whole document to have one dot point around the (fishing) industry’s use of the marina is concerning,” she said.

Mr Rufus said the council wanted to ensure the needs of all user groups within those precincts were being met within budget constraints.

A concept design for the Port Lincoln Foreshore Precinct is also being developed to maximise the precincts potential and the existing infrastructure.
