Frequently Asked Questions
What is a master plan?
A master plan is a long term strategic document created to guide the future growth and development of a defined location, precinct or site.
What is the purpose of this master plan?
The master plan aims to cater for junior and senior sport, provide quality training facilities and provide a venue for elite sporting events at state and regional level. The supporting infrastructure includes a community pavilion providing support services that have the potential to provide aquatic, medical, physiotherapy, rehabilitation health, wellness and fitness services.
The facilities would provide 7 day a week operations and establish a community meeting place including a café/ bistro, child minding, meeting place and opportunities for learning and education.
How long will it take to finalise the master plan?
The master plan that is currently on public exhibition is a draft. Finalisation of the master plan requires the elected Council to review and consider feedback from submissions received through the exhibition process. This involves Council staff summarising the main points raised in submissions and recommending changes (if needed) to the draft Master Plan. The elected Council at an open Council meeting then determines if it adopts (finalises) the Master Plan or if additional information is required before a decision can be determined.
What happens if I put in late submission?
The submission deadline is to allow Council to review, consider and report submission information to the elected Council. Unfortunately, submissions received after the submission deadline may not be included in a report to Council.
How long will it take to implement the master plan?
Full implementation of the master plan will be a challenge for Council and timing and the amount of works undertaken will be depended on funding available for the project. Therefore, implementation of the master plan is estimate to take 30 years, and in doing so it intends to meet the needs of a growing community now and into the future.
