The management arrangements of recreational boating infrastructure in Port Phillip and Western Port bays will be reviewed to help make boating even better across Victoria.
The review, to be undertaken by Deloitte, will hear from recreational boaters, current infrastructure managers, service providers and relevant agencies and will investigate options to improve management arrangements.
Better Boating Victoria is overseeing the delivery of the Victorian Government’s boating commitments – including scrapping public boat ramp launching and parking fees – and will release a discussion paper later this year to encourage feedback from stakeholders.
The Port Phillip and Western Port boating infrastructure management review is expected to be finished by April 2020.
It comes as the Government continues its work on removing boat launching and parking fees at public boat ramps and upgrading ramps at six priority locations as part of a $47.2 million commitment in the 2019/20 Budget.
Better Boating Victoria is working hard to make parking and launching at all remaining publicly available boat ramps free, with just Mordialloc still charging fees.
