Littlehampton and Blakiston Plan
At the time of the 2011 Census, the Littlehampton area was home to 3100 people, or 10% of the District's population.
In recent years the community’s message to Council has been that this area needs a coordinated plan for its future.
Council has resolved to prepare a ‘Master Plan’ and has consulted community members about what matters in Littlehampton and Blakiston.
There are important changes facing the local community:
- Another 1000 people will be living here in the future as land already zoned for housing is fully developed. The resident population has already doubled in the 25 years up to 2011, and over time this development and growth has impacted on the appearance and amenity of the area.
- The new freeway ramps under construction at Bald Hills Rd will reduce traffic on North Tce and the Old Princes Hwy, providing an opportunity to improve the main street of Littlehampton.
- Council will soon make decisions about the ‘Glebe land’, an 8 hectare site it owns between Littlehampton and Blakiston. The community’s views on the use and planning of this site are an important consideration in these decisions.
About The Plan
The Littlehampton & Blakiston Plan will include a focus on:
- providing a safe, welcoming and more vibrant place to live
- the needs of community members at different stages of life
- the physical environment such as urban infrastructure, housing, public facilities and open space
- township character and appearance
Your ideas and information will inform the key actions and priorities in the Plan.
The consultation period has CLOSED.
