Bellarine Bayside has released the Draft Northern Bellarine Coastal and Marine Management Plan (the Draft CMMP) for public consultation.

The Draft CMMP has been developed in accordance with the Marine and Coastal Act 2018 following a review of the previous strategic plan and extensive consultation with community, partner agencies and stakeholders.

The Draft CMMP guides the future protection, enhancement, development and management of 17km of northern Bellarine coastal Crown land reserve extending from Point Richards in Portarlington to Beach Road in St Leonards. It does so by setting the vision and goals guiding the management of the reserve through strategic actions and an implementation plan of works for the next five years.

We want to hear from you about the future of the northern Bellarine foreshore!

Community and stakeholder feedback is integral to the public consultation process to help Bellarine Bayside identify the priorities and issues that are important to the community.
