Why did we develop a Masterplan?
The Masterplan has been developed for use as a vital tool in attracting funding to upgrade the Forster Main Beach precinct. The Masterplan is intended to represent a 30 year strategy and will be an important tool to obtain funding, liaise with stakeholders, budget and generally plan for the future of the precinct.
MidCoast Council engages consultants 'The Design Partnership' to assist the community and Council to develop a Forster Main Beach Masterplan.
Over 500 people attend a 'Big Ideas BBQ' consultation at Main Beach, generating many ideas for future planning for the area. Consultations are also head with Forster SLSC and other special interest groups.
