ERA Planning in conjunction with Playstreet Landscape Architecture and Urban Design were engaged by the Devonport City Council to prepare a master plan for the Kelcey Tier Greenbelt Reserve. The Kelcey Tier is a 185ha area of remnant bushland located directly adjacent and to the south of Devonport.

The master plan aims to provide a realistic, measured and achievable approach to balancing the reserve values and recreational uses. The master plan will articulate a future direction for the Reserve along with a program of prioritised works, indicative associated costs and potential contributors. Development footprints, for both active and passive recreation will be identified and designed in a manner to avoid impacts to natural and cultural values.

Stakeholder and community engagement has been a key element of the master planning process and ERA have facilitated a local workshop as well as drop in sessions and sought written feedback via email. The results of the engagement process informed the draft master plan which was then made available for formal public comment.

Council are currently considering the final master plan for endorsement.
