January 2019 update
At a meeting in January of the City of Holdfast Bay, the Council agreed to undertake a review of the endorsed master plan following feedback from the community (our May 2018 forum in particular) and further liaison with the local Kaurna Elders. This is a significant event for those who have been following this long saga, and one that we can feel proud of in terms of our persistence and respectful challenge of some critical aspects of the previous Master Plan. We will keep you posted as the details unfold.
December 2018 update
A legal challenge to the original approval for the coast path has delayed further works on the plan since the May forum. Read more here.
May 2018 Public Forum
After more than 3 years the City of Holdfast Bay has agreed to present the plan and their delivery program to a public forum on Tuesday 15 May 2018. The forum was well attended. Read the full report here.
The Kingston Park foreshore is a unique and special part of the 5049 community which we all share and enjoy. Its spiritual, cultural and social value is undeniable.
In 2015 the City of Holdfast Bay endorsed the ‘Kingston Park Reserve Masterplan’. Throughout this time the 5049 Coastal Community (formerly the Marino Residents Association) has been campaigning to influence positive outcomes for our community in this area.
Elements of the plan are welcome, however based on local feedback, the Association have highlighted to Council risks associated with the plan; in particular issues with parking, vegetation, the playground and café.
