The Wyndham Coastal & Marine Management Plan has been developed in partnership with the Wyndham community over several years and provides a framework for the improved access and development of the Wyndham coastline. The preparation of the Plan has included three rounds of community engagement, where community aspirations, ideas and preferences have guided major implementation initiatives and priorities.
The Plan embodies sustainable land management principles including the use of sea level rise projection mapping and mapping of significant vegetation species within the marine environment and along the coastal edge to guide future precinct planning. The plan also outlines are range of coastal tourism and land use development opportunities with the potential to attract more visitors to Wyndham.
Implementation of the Plan includes several major initiatives that will lead to a better connected and resilient City. These include:
- Implementation of the K Road Cliffs Master Plan.
- The development of a boardwalk and footbridge connecting the Sanctuary Lakes and Saltwater Coast communities.
- A summertime activation program to at Werribee South Beach including lifeguarding, accessible beach matting and water sports equipment hire.
- Master planning at Campbells Cove to guide the development of a future shared path alignment and open space improvement works.
The Coastal and Marine Management Plan provides a unique opportunity for Council to actively plan and invest in future improvement works on our coastline. Implementation of the Plan will leave a lasting legacy for future generations to use and enjoy in terms of improved open space access, better community facilities and connectivity to the Port Phillip Bay Trail.
