The City of Melville is inviting the community to two drop-in sessions to view the draft Attadale Alfred Cove Master Plan as the future of this important natural area continues to be shaped.
The sessions will offer a first look at the draft master plan and provide an opportunity to ask questions about the plan in the lead-up and during the public comment period.
City of Melville Mayor the Hon. George Gear JP said the City had been collaborating with the community and stakeholders to develop the draft master plan, which will establish a vision for the Attadale Alfred Cove Foreshore, help guide future investments and support decision making for the next 20 years.
“The drop-in sessions follow the comprehensive engagement process we held earlier this year, led by independent consultants Element and their broader expert team,” said Mayor Gear.
“The draft master plan prepared by Element has been shaped by the valuable community input captured during and following the charette program in June and July 2021.
“We understand how important the Attadale Alfred Cove Foreshore is for the community in terms of its natural beauty, rich biodiversity, its ancient and historical significance, as well as the diverse sporting and recreation activities that are enjoyed by a wide variety of users.
“I encourage you to come along to the sessions and share your feedback on the draft master plan during the formal public comment period, which will be open for five weeks from Friday, 29 October to Sunday, 5 December 2021.”
City staff and members of the consultant’s project team will be at the sessions to help answer any queries the community has about the draft master plan.
It is anticipated that the final master plan, including a report on public submissions received, will be considered at the Ordinary Meeting of Council in March 2022.
