Leases and Licences

Bellarine Bayside offer a range of leases and licences for buildings and land parcels that assist in delivering services to the community in line with the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978, the Marine and Coastal Act 2018 and other relevant legislation and policy.

If a boat shed licence becomes available, it will go through a public application process, overseen by a real estate agent.
