2017 Old Farm Masterplan

The National Trust of Western Australia has recently reviewed the 2012 Masterplan for Old Farm, Strawberry Hill and following a period of community consultation and widely circulated survey, has prepared a revised version to submit to the City of Albany for endorsement.

This process is a key component in the proposed amalgamation of a number of lots that currently make up the place, into a single ‘special use’ zone.

The Masterplan and vision for the site has been determined through a detailed process of conservation and interpretation planning funded through a Federal Government grant in 2012.  With the bicentenary of British settlement of Western Australia nearing, the Trust aspires to Old Farm (as the State’s first government farm) being central to the celebrations. The Master plan vision is for an open, family friendly site that is a key resource for the local community as well as firmly placing it as a must-see heritage tourism destination in the Albany region.

The National Trust recognises the social, cultural and physical intricacies present at Old Farm and have aimed to be respectful to the significance of the place and the community within which it is located.  The community will be offered a chance to comment on the proposed land use amendments when they are presented to council and open to public comment, however we wish to specifically engage with our immediate neighbours prior to submission.
