The Victorian Coastal Strategy 2014 was recently released, with important actions and goals that directly impact our activities as coastal guardians.
Prepared by the Victorian Coastal Council, the strategy provides a five-year plan for managing Victoria’s coastline in the face of major ongoing change. It builds on the principles and actions of the previous three strategies and responds to three significant issues that require specific attention: climate change, population and growth, and marine ecological integrity.
The new strategy is fundamental to how coastal land management agencies manage the coast.
The Strategy includes policies and actions for biodiversity, access and education, caravan parks, ports, and infrastructure – all key issues areas for the coastal lands that Bellarine Bayside has responsibility for.
