Port Lincoln council invites input on master planning

Port Lincoln community members and businesses are being invited to share their vision of Port Lincoln’s future at co-design workshops at the Nautilus Arts Centre on December 6 and 7.

The workshop is part of a new consultation process for developing master plans for the foreshore, central business district and marina areas of Port Lincoln.

The council’s chief executive officer Stephen Rufus said the precinct master plans would establish a shared vision for the long-term future of the city.

“We invite the community to be involved throughout the master planning process, as we work with a highly talented group of planning and design experts to produce outstanding master plans for our three key precincts and detailed design work for the foreshore in particular,” he said.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen the city through liveability, tourism, recreation and economic development while preserving and making visible our culture and historic character.”

Two open studio sessions are open for all and will take place on Thursday from 1pm and on Friday from 9am, with a business breakfast at 7.30am which will focus on the CBD, registrations required.

Port Lincoln mayor Brad Flaherty said the sessions offered residents and businesses the perfect opportunity to meet consultants Jensen Plus and have their views heard on the future of the City of Port Lincoln.

“I would urge everyone who is interested in the future of this iconic City to visit one of the open studio codesign workshops and have their say,” he said.

Information collected at the sessions will feed into the preparation of Draft Precinct Master Plans and designs for the foreshore.
