Lot 10 Langhorne Creek Road, Strathalbyn

The Project

Council owned land at Lot 10 Langhorne Creek Road, Strathalbyn has been earmarked as a recreation precinct for many years. The process of preparing a plan for its development began in 2018 and a concept plan was prepared to inform a change to the zoning of the land enabling it to be developed for recreational purposes.

Council supported and further progressed the project in June 2021 and the forming of a Project Steering Group comprising the Mayor, three elected members and representatives from the following recreation and sporting groups, as interested parties for the site location:-

  • Strathalbyn and District Basketball Association
  • Strathalbyn Strikers Football Club
  • Eastern Fleurieu School
  • Strathalbyn Agricultural Society Inc.
  • Strathalbyn Model Aircraft Club
  • Strathalbyn Cricket Club
  • Strathalbyn Campdraft.

In February 2022 Council engaged consultations, Hemisphere Design and Hatch to assist in preparing a Master Plan for Lot 10. The Master Plan will provide the framework to deliver on the project through the preparation of plans, management models and infrastructure needs.

As part of the Master Plan development a community Drop in session was held on 27 April 2022 at the Strathalbyn Library as part of the initial information gathering phase.

The Master Plan will continue to be developed in consultation with the Lot 10 Project Steering Group, however there will be opportunities for the general community to be engaged with the project development through the formal community consultation phase.
