The Board’s Western Regional Coastal Plan was endorsed by the Minister and gazetted in September 2015. The Plan, which is consistent with the regional plans for Gippsland and Central coasts aims to implement the Victorian Coastal Strategy 2014 in the Western Region. It provides guidance to local coastal managers in preparing their own Local Coastal Management Plans. The Plan applies to the Western coastal region from Breamlea to the South Australian border, including the municipalities from Surf Coast Shire in the east through to Glenelg Shire in the west.
