Print Master Plan

Project overview

The Hervey Bay Esplanade Tourist Precinct Master Plan (PDF,6.1MB) which was adopted by Council at its meeting held on 21 October 2015 is the result of a collaborative process between the Council, precinct business owners and the community.

The Plan for the four high profile Esplanade Precincts – Pialba, Scarness, Torquay and Urangan; considers the future “look” and “feel” of each precinct, and achieves this through:

  • Identifying place-making and revitalisation opportunities
  • Seeking to maximise the level of activation and excitement
  • Celebrating the wonderful features that already exist
  • Presenting an agreed framework to guide decisions and future investment
  • Being visionary

Information relating to proposed actions for each precinct is detailed by clicking on the links above.
