Wearing Street Aquatic and Arts Precinct

Project update

The Wearing Street Aquatic and Arts Precinct redevelopment will create a destination for the community to enjoy this unique setting and deliver a landmark entry statement for the Port Noarlunga township.

Key features of this exciting redevelopment include:

  • upgraded river bank with improved aquatic launch area, shelters, toilets and lawn area
  • new community accommodation for existing aquatic groups
  • reconfigured carparking areas
  • formalise Mann Street to provide direct access to the precinct.

Community engagement on the draft Wearing Street Aquatic and Arts precinct concept plan has been a key focus commencing with a comprehensive process to gain community feedback during May/June 2018.

Several modifications to the concept plan have been developed in response to community feedback including increased riverfront car parks (total of 28 spaces), larger river launch area and ramp access for aquatic users.

The portion of state government land at the corner of Wearing and Mann Street containing a grove of Casuarina Glauca plants is excluded from this project and will remain under state government ownership.

On 10 December 2019, Council approved the revised concept plan enabling detailed design to be undertaken informed by further consultation with key stakeholders and technical hydrological advice.

Construction of the project is subject to:

  • external funding contribution being available
  • transfer of state government owned land at no cost to council
  • statutory approvals

Interest in a commercial operation will also be explored as part of this project.

The final detailed design will be presented to a future Council meeting.
