The desire to improve the streetscape of Snowy River Avenue was an outcome of the Jindabyne Action Plan 2030. The Action Plan was developed in conjunction with the local community, having over 400 residents contribute to discussions and over 28,000 comments received. The Action Plan has prompted the revitalisation of Snowy River Avenue into a Main Street.
Jindabyne Action Plan 2030
In 1960, architect Professor Denis Winston drew up a plan for the 'new' town of Jindabyne, to accommodate around 150 home sites.
After almost 50 years of growth, Snowy River Shire Council has commenced a planning process for the urban areas of Jindabyne, Kalkite, East Jindabyne and Tyrolean Village, their 3,500 residents and thousands of visitors.
The Jindabyne Action Plan process identifies opportunities for people
to work together in addressing a range of issues and to access federal/state funding for infrastructure or improvements to the town. The Jindabyne Action Plan process has, up until now, involved technical studies (traffic and transport and urban design) and a review of previous consultation with the community.
Using this review of earlier consultations, Council developed a way forward towards the new Jindabyne Action Plan. Specifically, Council developed the Workbook and a series of key stakeholder surveys, as the basis of its Round Two consultation.
The findings of the Round Two Consultation are now available on Council's website.
The extensive Round Two consultation findings are reported in six separate volumes found in the links on this page:
The Executive Summary (Volume 1) presents an overview of the 'mood' of the consultation, as well as an introduction to the 'overarching themes' and some of the 'major themes' that emerged from the consultation. In all cases, for more detailed information, the Executive Summary points readers onwards to the relevant sections in each of Volumes Two to Six, from where they can follow the discussions in a more detailed way, if they choose.
The Jindabyne Action Plan establishes meaningful strategies for the coming 20 years so we can address long term planning issues such as climate change, ageing population, provision of community services and facilities, town centre revitalisation, transport, education and provision of infrastructure to sustain growth.
