Northern Coastline Master Plan

The Northern Coastline Master Plan seeks to identify and prioritise future projects and actions for the coastline, aiming at increasing visitation and length of stay in the future.

With these aims, the master plan sets out some 75 recommended initiatives, presented as proposed works that may potentially be subject of implementation over coming years, budgets permitting. Key initiatives include, for example, improving the dive facilities on the Cuttlefish coast, and seeking expressions of interest for private redevelopment of the lighthouse and cottage precinct with associated camping and recreation improvements. Some work to support opportunities for cuttlefish viewing has already commenced, including new access and car parking arrangements, shelter and toilets.

In general, low cost capital works should be preferred in keeping with the natural beauty and sense of isolation of the region. Council remains aware that initiatives will need to be strictly rationalised and tested against the realities of annual budget process, and carefully prioritised accordingly.

To help Council establish the priorities and programme its works for 2017/18 and beyond, you are invited to complete this on-line survey regarding which of the large number of proposed initiatives in the master plan should be accorded a high priority.  This feedback will assist Council in determining the order of importance and sequencing of works to be recommended to Council in any budget term.
