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 are being used to inform the draft master plan.
