Victorian Coastal Strategy 2008
The Victorian Coastal Strategy 2008 was officially co-launched by Minister for the Environment and Climate Change ,Gavin Jennings and Minister for Planning, Justin Madden on 10 December 2008.
Prepared by the Victorian Coastal Council, the new 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 two 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 Barwon Coast has responsibility for.
