We consulted extensively with the Jindabyne community on the Go Jindabyne draft Master Plan.

 

Feedback from locals as well as findings from a range of technical studies highlighted the need to extend thinking beyond Jindabyne’s town centre and look at the Snowy Mountains region as a whole. 

 

As a result, the Go Jindabyne draft Master Plan will be combined with a Special Activation Precinct Master Plan.

 

We will continue to work closely with the community, stakeholders and other NSW Government Agencies on this important project.

What's happening next? 

We are taking every opportunity to engage with the community and do research in the area.

Technical studies

We will undertake technical studies to create an evidence base to inform the Special Activation Precinct Draft Master Plan.

 

The studies will focus on:

  • economic development
  • demographics and housing
  • environment and heritage
  • development of year-round attractions and improved amenity of the area
  • infrastructure, services and regional access
  • removing capacity constraints to enable growth in winter tourism
  • mobility and connectivity

Draft Master Plan

 
The draft Masterplan will be released for public exhibition in late 2020. We'll be consulting far and wide with locals and visitors so everyone can have their say.

Our team will review feedback on the draft Master Plan and make changes as needed for release of the final Special Activation Draft Master Plan in 2021.

What's happened so far?

In May 2019 we were in Jindabyne to hear the community's vision for the future of the town.

 

We listened to the community and released their vision in the community-owned vision and principles [PDF, 1.08MB].

 

More than 250 people attended the events and hundreds of people shared their vision.

 

The visions shared are an important step in developing the Master Plan.

The community's statement

From November 2018 to the end of February 2019 we engaged the Jindabyne community and surrounding towns to understand the unique values, character and story of Jindabyne.

 

This allowed us to take part in open discussions about the future of the town, its challenges and its opportunities.

 

The sentiments and insights shared by the community are in the Community Statement [PDF, 9.14MB]. The Community Statement will help shape the development of the Go Jindabyne Master Plan.

Working Groups

We established two Community Working Groups and a Youth Working Group to represent the voices of the broader community at important milestones during the development of the Go Jindabyne Master Plan.

 

The groups consist of a wide range of local organisations and students from local schools that represent the diverse interests of residents including youth, education, economic development, tourism, arts, culture and Aboriginal communities.
