Boat HarbourBeach Master Plan
ERA with Campbell+Jones, and Cumulus Studios are currently finalising the Boat Harbour Beach Plan for Waratah-Wynyard Council.
Boat Harbour Beach is a small settlement located north west of Wynyard. It is a traditional summer destination for residents of the north west coast as well as home to a small permanent residential population. Its picturesque setting and accessibility to the beach and iconic destinations such as Rocky Cape National Park has contributed to attracting tourism in the area. Recent proposed developments have generated significant community interest and current public infrastructure is considered to be under pressure.
The plan is intended to provide a unifying vision for the area outlining strategic principles and direction required to deliver infrastructure and public realm improvements. The first stage of the process included extensive consultation to inform the opportunities and constraints analysis including workshops with elected members and council officers, community input workshops, surveys and one on one discussions.
The second stage of the project has been the further community consultation on the draft master plan. This included a community walk through the settlement and opportunity for written submission
