Our vision for Avalon

We have worked with the local community to find out what Avalon Beach residents value most and what features make Avalon Beach such a special and unique place.

My Place: Avalon, our draft Avalon Beach Place Plan focusses on public domain improvements and programs that will contribute to a shared place vision. Together with community led ideas and actions, the place plan will build on Avalon Beach's unique character, to create a place for all people to enjoy, now and in the future.

The draft Avalon Beach Place Plan highlights the ways we can:

  • enhance community spaces and streets
  • create active and lively places to meet, gather and relax
  • improve connections for pedestrians, cyclists and cars
  • provide new facilities for young people.

We have tried to make this consultation as accessible as possible for you. We understand that not everyone will have the time to read the entire plan, so have made it easy to jump straight to the elements of the plan that might interest you most.

The five guiding principles

The place plan is guided by five principles which balance economic, environmental, and social impacts with opportunities to bring the community's vision to life.
