The Victorian Government’s new Environmental Management Plan for Port Phillip Bay is part of the Government’s commitment to enhance and protect Victoria’s marine and coastal environment. The new Plan will be developed throughout 2016.

Informed by community and stakeholder feedback, the new plan will seek to address key aspirations and respond to challenges to the future management of the Bay, protecting it for generations to come.
