Thank you to everyone who joined us at the community information session about the proposed Concept Plan for The Waterfront, Shell Cove on Tuesday evening.

It was very valuable to hear your thoughts and to have the opportunity to respond to your questions.

One of the key points made by members of the community was the need to communicate more closely and regularly in future.

We recognise that people are very passionate about Shell Cove and we share the local community’s aspiration to ensure it is the best possible place that it can be.

With this in mind, we propose to hold information sessions every six months so members of the community can receive the latest planning, construction and project information.

We will also continue to keep you updated via email and provide updates on our website.

A Community Development Manager will also be appointed so there is a continual point of contact and clear access for information.

Other themes raised at the community information session included:

  • Protecting the local coastal community’s character and lifestyle;
  • Minimising traffic issues that may result from the proposed increase in dwellings;
  • Ensuring sufficient parking is provided to meet increased demand;
  • Understand how the proposed plans will impact views from existing properties; and
  • Ensure quality design and delivery and that long term property values are considered.

The Department of Planning and Environment is currently receiving submissions on the proposed Concept Plan modifications and we encourage everyone interested in this project to have their say.

Your feedback will provide us with a greater understanding of the issues we need to consider and how the proposed plans might best respond to these.

The planning proposal is on display for comment until 20 October 2017. Plans can be viewed and submissions can be made here.

The information displays shown at the 10 October community information session can be viewed here
