Residents of Pelican and Blacksmiths contribute ideas for the future

Council met with some residents of Pelican and Blacksmiths in late 2015 to listen and talk about opportunities for the community to help plan for the future of the area and prepare a Local Adaptation Plan.

The primary objective of these sessions was to listen and build relationships, in order to help scope and design the project.

A secondary objective was to gauge people’s interest in participating in the planning process scheduled for 2016.

We asked participants:

  • What can you tell us about the area? Are there any issues you would like to raise?
  • Are there any flooding or foreshore (coastal or lake) management issues you would like to raise for Council to consider?
  • What do you value about the area?
  • How would you like to be involved?

Council staff were also on hand to talk about the draft Marks Point and Belmont South Local Adaptation Plan.


Participants contributed more than 40 ideas about ideas for the future and current issues or observations. Council and the community will draw on this information again in community workshops scheduled for later this year. These comments have been uploaded to an interactive map.

We are now giving everyone the opportunity to have their say, whether you live in Pelican and Blacksmiths or elsewhere.
