Shoal Bay Place Plan

Council is working on connecting the community’s aspirations for Shoal Bay. Opportunities for the community to lead these ideas have been explored and will be prioritised, so ideas and concepts during a series of workshops in 2021 and 2022.

Our draft Place Plan will consolidate Shoal Bay’s strengths, ambitions, and identify short, medium and long-term actions that Council and the communities can work on together to create opportunities. This Place Plan also sets out a pathway to nurture everything that’s already great about Shoal Bay.

Liveability score

In August 2020, we teamed up with Place Score to complete our first-ever place census. Over 3,700 people across the LGA, including people who live, play and visit Shoal Bay, told us what they value and how they rate the suburb. The survey results helped us identify the priorities for the Shoal Bay community and plan accordingly.

Place Plan phases

We’re currently in phase 3 - we're are talking with our previous workshop participants to check in with them on our draft actions and make sure we're on the right track.
