Fore­shore plan ready to go

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth -

EIGHT ob­jec­tives have been es­tab­lished in the City of South Perth’s South Perth Fore­shore Strat­egy and Man­age­ment Plan, which was made avail­able on­line on Fri­day.

They in­clude more op­por­tu­ni­ties for so­cial ac­tiv­ity and to im­prove ac­ces­si­bil­ity and con­nec­tiv­ity.

After an ex­ten­sive plan­ning and com­mu­nity en­gage­ment process, the plan will be pre­sented to coun­cil for adop­tion later this month.

It out­lines the find­ings from back­ground in­ves­ti­ga­tion and stake­holder en­gage­ment un­der­taken since 2012.

It pri­ori­tises 10 nodes or ar­eas of the fore­shore and lists strate­gies for the fu­ture of the re­serve.

City of South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said the plan would guide the man­age­ment of the fore­shore into the fu­ture.

“The aim of the plan is to bal­ance the com­pet­ing de­mands for use, de­vel­op­ment and man­age­ment of this pre­cious re­gional pub­lic open space,” she said.

She said the plan iden­ti­fied the most ap­pro­pri­ate com­bi­na­tion of uses for the fore­shore.

Perth Wa­ters River­park is a cir­cuit of park­land of more than 10 kilo­me­tres in­clud­ing the South Perth Fore­shore.

Whole of fore­shore strate­gies and the ten nodes.
