Time to share ideas for possible future development of harbour

Monday, 16 February 2015

People are being called on to help shape the city's waterfront by sharing their ideas for transforming Casuarina Harbour.

At a community workshop taking place at 1pm this Saturday February 21 at the Sanctuary Golf Resort, people can provide input into the creation of a master plan for the area.

The land up for discussion is listed as "Area 7" on the concept plan developed by the Bunbury Marine Facilities Steering Committee and put out for public comment last year.

South West Development Commission chief executive officer Don Punch encouraged people to put their thoughts forward about how the potential marine and tourism hub could be used in the future.

"As we progress planning for Bunbury's marine facilities, there will be opportunities for public comment and this is the next phase where we would like people to have a say in how they envision the area being used into the future," he said.

"Though the outer harbour will continue to be a working port, there is room for a range of possible uses and we would like to hear your ideas.

"Come along to the community workshop this Saturday and let us know what you would like to see there and what you don't want to see there.

"All feedback received will be used by consultants to prepare a proposal for public comment.

"This will be followed by more detailed planning and development of a master plan."

The community consultation is being undertaken on behalf of the Bunbury Marine Facilities Steering Committee.

People planning on attending the community workshop are asked to RSVP to SWDC on 9792 2000 or info@swdc.wa.gov.au .
