Calling for community responses
The City has developed a draft Master Plan for the Battery Point Slipyards to provide an opportunity to re-imagine the Slipyards and their operation, moving into the future.
The draft Master Plan was prepared by a multi-disciplinary team of consultants following a comprehensive research and engagement process in 2017-2018. The document identified a number of key values and opportunities that are important to the community and lease holders. Some of them include:
- making the slipyards a more inviting environment
- providing greater pedestrian connectivity and access
- raising awareness about the site’s history
- improving park infrastructure and playground facilities
- opening up view lines through the site.
The site of the Battery Point Slipyards is a special place that has provided connection between the land and sea for tens of thousands of years. The Mouheneener band of the South East Nation of Aboriginal Tasmania are the Traditional Custodians of this place and Tasmanian Aboriginal people continue to connect with this area and the surrounding waterways, its food, rituals and spiritual values. More recent history has seen this site as a hub of shipwright and maritime activity.
To ensure the future use and development of the site meet community expectations, the City is now seeking your feedback.
