Coastal and Marine Management Plan

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

Council is developing a five-year plan, known as the Coastal and Marine Management Plan (CMMP). The plan will set our vision, objectives, and actions for Kingston’s coastal and marine areas. Strategic, 'big-picture' planning allows us to better coordinate our approach to coastal and marine management.

We need your help to develop this plan. We want to work collaboratively with you to develop a CMMP that incorporates community values, builds on the best of our popular marine and coastal areas and sets out an exciting vision for the future.

Developing the plan:
In developing the plan we will:
- Work closely with our community, key stakeholders, Traditional Owners and agencies
- Build on Kingston’s existing strategies and coastal management experience
- Shape up goals and actions for management of our foreshore and its adjacent marine areas
- Be guided by new Victorian Government legislation and policy (the Marine and Coastal Act 2018 and the recently adopted Marine and Coastal Policy).

What will Council do with the feedback I provide?
This consultation is the first step of a longer process Council is undertaking to develop its CMMP and there will be a number of opportunities to provide feedback along the journey. Join our mailing list to receive project updates direct to your inbox!

We will be using your feedback as well as discussions with key stakeholders to help inform a summary document, highlighting key strategies and opportunities available to help manage important values and issues and improve our coast. Later stages of the project will build on this work to develop the five-year management plan. This will include further community engagement to check we have it right, and understand and develop management options and priority actions.

Have your say:
Council is keen to seek a broad range of feedback from the community to help inform the draft Coastal and Marine Management Plan. We would like to know more about what you value most and what can be improved in our popular marine and coastal areas.
