About Naval Base Shacks
The City manages the Naval Base Holiday Park, which comprises 176 shacks located on the shores of Cockburn Sound, at the very southern tip of the City along Cockburn Road.
The City endorsed the preperation of a Management Plan
for Reserve 24308 at the 10 May 2012 Ordinary Meeting of Council.
To assist in the preparation of the draft Management Plan the City established a community reference group to provide input to the City. The reference group was made up of shack lessees who represented the views of the shack lessees and in partnership with technical officers and Elected Members representatives; the draft was prepared and sent to all lessees for their comment. The closing date for submissions was 17 January 2014.
The Management Plan
for the reserve is now in place, setting out how future improvements to the site will be managed. Some infrastructure works were scheduled for early 2015 and have been commenced;
- Improved street lighting
- Bench seats installed
- Line markings
The City will continue to progress the various works and upgrades indentifed in the Management Plan to the park.
Council at the 12 March 2015 Ordinary Meeting of Council Adopted APD4 'Public Open Space' & APD65 'Naval Base Holiday Park - Heritage Area' for Final Approval.
provides a strategic overview of how public open space should be addressed in relation to the assessment of structure plans and subdivision applications. APD65
focuses on providing a statutory policy that will guide future additions or alterations to existing structures and how new structures should be built.
A copy of both policies are available via the links in the above paragraph and also under Planning and Development document to the right of this page.
