What is the Draft Master Plan?

The purpose of a Draft Master Plan is to provide a ‘proposed’ strategy and framework for future development of an area or site.  The plan outlines the future improvements and developments proposed for the site, where they should be located and the scale of developments that could occur.  The draft master planning process involves a review of the existing conditions of the area, its utilisation, its strengths and current issues or community concerns.

Consultation with users of the facility and the community is an important process in the development of a Draft Master Plan, along with detailed analysis of the community population, profile and research into best practice examples. Master Plans provide a high level, costed document for Council’s future planning purposes.
