Gravelly Beach Foreshore Master Plan

The Gravelly Beach foreshore is recognised as one of the most important community open spaces and recreational areas along the Tamar River, North of Launceston. In 2003 the West Tamar Council prepared the ‘Gravelly Beach Foreshore and Environs Landscape Master Plan’ (LMP) to guide the development of the Gravelly Beach foreshore from Rose Bay Park through to Anzac Park.

'Gravelly Beach Project' Brochure created in 2019, refined the (LMP) into a pragmatic and financially achievable plan for the Gravelly Beach Foreshore. West Tamar Council has since used it to secure Federal Government funding for the project.

The Gravelly Beach Foreshore Master Plan, developed by Playstreet Landscape Architects and West Tamar Council, in consultation with the Gravelly Beach community, has developed the high-level ‘Gravelly Beach Project’ plan into the following landscape master plan which looks further at public amenity and improvements to Rose Bay Park in addition to the recreation area adjacent to the shopping strip. The following master plan also includes both stage 1 and potential future project works.

Version 1 of the Foreshore Master Plan has successfully gone through the public review period. A cost estimate has been produced to ensure the scope of the stage 1 works is achievable within the available funds. The master plan and cost estimate provides a guide to the next project phase that prepares the master plan design for the development application process.

The Gravelly Beach Pontoon has been upgraded in 2022 as part of the Master Plan. Design work for the new amenities block and supporting infrastructure continues as the next stage of this project.
