The Port Stanley Waterfront Master Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Welcome to the Municipality of Central Elgin’s Port Stanley Waterfront Master Plan Community Consultation Hub!

The Municipality of Central Elgin understands the importance of the Port Stanley Waterfront to both residents and visitors. The Municipality along with Thinc Design and Riel Cultural Consulting is developing a Waterfront Master Plan for the Port Stanley Harbour Area that builds on the recently approved Port Stanley Harbour Area Secondary Planning Study. This Master Plan will, in consultation with the community, determine the future use and configuration of the harbour community facility area over the next 15-20 years.

The Master Plan study area is comprised of approximately 13.6 ha of public realm space, which includes the waterfront lands south of Main Street, as well as lands east and west of Kettle Creek south of Bridge Street. This includes the West Breakwall, Hofhuis Park, and West and East Pier Walkways.

The Municipality of Central Elgin wants to develop a Master Plan that will best serve the community, which means we want to hear from YOU to find out about waterfront services and infrastructure that are needed in the community.

Use the consultation tools below to participate by asking questions, sharing ideas and comments relating to the Master Plan. If you would like to speak to someone working on the project directly, please contact us via email.

If you would like to stay directly engaged during the Plan’s development, follow this project page and register to receive project updates! New information and opportunities to engage in the project will be provided regularly.

This project is funded from the Harbour Fund and Development Charges.

Please Note: Both registered and unregistered participants can use the site’s consultation tools. Unregistered participants of the site still require an email and a screen name to be able to post.

    We are grateful to our communities for the feedback we've received on these masterplans thus far. We've summarized, developed conceptual designs, precedent images, and launched a new survey and ideas section based on what we've heard over the past two months.

    Please share your thoughts in the Ideas section and take part in the most recent survey so we can refine the plans even more to our communities needs.

  • Drop a Pin!

    A significant part of developing the Waterfront Master Plan is incorporating what we hear from you!

    We've created a new tool in this section of the page which allow you to drop a pin and comment on what you like, dislike or want to see happen!

    Use the colour-coded pins to provide:

    1. What's working on the waterfront? (yellow pins)
    2. What problems have you experienced on the waterfront? (blue pins)
    3. What needs to happen or change on the waterfront? (green pins)

    Comments, suggestions, and images can be placed on the map after the pins have been placed. Only pins placed within the boundaries of our study area* will be considered (red line).

    (Please note that both registered and unregistered members are allowed to add their ideas. Unregistered members still need to use an email and screen name to post.)
