Coastal Path Works
We were all pleased to see the completion of the Coastal path at the end of May 2018. It is clear that the number of users has increased; a figure of 1000 visitors/week was mentioned! Anecdotally there is more traffic as we all enjoy our summer in Kingston Park.
There was a legal challenge on the original approval for the coast path by a senior Kaurna Elder which prevented any further works on the coast path or the master plan for over 10 months. As a result the momentum achieved following our Public Forum in May 2018 had been lost.
This matter has now been resolved and we have written to council on the communities behalf to encourage re-commencement of activities towards completion of the coast path reinstatement works and progress on the master plan. Here is the reply
The response included some key positive outcomes:
The 5049 CC has continued to liaise with Council on the short term and long term solutions for the balance of the reserve whilst the Master Plan is developed.
It is a slow and frustrating process so if you have any ideas or suggestions you want to share?
