    Your Voice Our Coast

The Entrance Place Plan

The Entrance Place Plan

Consultation for this project has now concluded.

In July 2020, our community shared their ideas to help shape the future of the Entrance town centre and create a destination which is thriving and engaging all year round. We have listened and used your valuable feedback to draft The Entrance Town Centre Place Plan. 

The Entrance is one of the most beautiful coastal towns in New South Wales. Its stunning scenic qualities and natural features established it as a coastal holiday destination in the 19th Century.

It was also named in the top 10 towns in Wotif’s annual Aussie Town of the Year Awards for 2021!

COVID-19 has shown us that the local community is essential to the survival and success of our town centres. The draft Place Plan will look at ways that we can improve the experience of The Entrance town centre for both our local community and our visitors to ensure its vibrant future. 

The draft place plan looks at The Entrance town centre in detail under 5 precincts: The town centre, the Waterfront Plaza, Memorial Park, Coastal Walk 1 and Coastal Walk 2.

In July 2020, we invited the community to share their ideas for the Entrance Town Centre via an ideas wall. We have taken your valuable feedback and used it to prepare a shared vision for The Entrance Town Centre Place Plan.

The Place Plan includes an ideas generator, which lists a range of ideas and projects to boost the local economy and keep the town centre alive and thriving all year round. 

We invited the community to let us know which ideas and projects were most important! 

The feedback collected will help us finalise the Place Plan and focus our resources on the projects and ideas that you value most.

We collected feedback between 15 March and 29 March 2021.

Together we can create an engaging, safe and welcoming space for everyone to enjoy and be proud of.
