West Estuaries Coastal Action Plan aims to set out how and what
to consider when preparing an individual management plan for local
estuaries. It brings together a regional planning framework and
structure, together with a suite of management strategy options
that can generally be applied to restore and protect the environmental
health of the estuaries of the south west coast of Victoria, and,
used as best practice guidelines in the development of individual
estuary management plans.
West Estuaries Coastal Action Plan has been developed in response
to a need to provide an overall strategic planning framework to
improve the quality, consistency and efficiency of planning and
management decisions for estuaries. It will also provide an important
guide for the preparation of future individual estuary management
plans affecting the health, ecology and hydrology of estuaries
along the south west coast.
