The Draft Vision
We want to ensure that the vision developed for the Smiths Beach Town Plan is consistent with the wider community's vision.
We have prepared the following draft vision:
Home to the ancient Bunurong people, with continuous of history, culture and ongoing connection, and its more recent community, emerging from holiday and surf culture, Smiths Beach will be a relaxed and connected coastal town that continues to embrace its seaside character, significant environmental attributes, and strong sense of community.
The town will remain a destination for visitors as a longstanding coastal attraction, while maintaining the relaxed residential amenity and sense of place treasured by the local community. The town will comfortably manage seasonal ebbs and flows of activity through the effective planning of access and movement, with a focus on people, to ensure safety and connectivity.
Smiths Beach will be an exemplar of resilience and sustainability as it deals with the stressors of peak periods, climate change and increasing attraction of visitors.
The town plan will be responsive to the challenges Smiths Beach faces, evolving as the needs of the community change into the future and will harness the community’s desire to continue to build on opportunities, driven by the strong passionate community voice including locals and agencies who care deeply about their town.
