Warneet boating precinct

The Draft Warneet Boating Precinct Plan has been finalised for consultation and is now available for community feedback.

The draft plans have been developed and divided into the Warneet north and Warneet south precincts. An additional concept design has been developed to formalise the car and trailer parking area.

Marine facilities at Warneet provide boating access to Western Port Bay through Rutherford Inlet, as well as providing fishing and other recreational activities through the two jetties.

The marine assets in Warneet are managed by different asset managers.  A coordinated approach with asset managers is required.

Better Boating Victoria listened to the concerns raised by the community over the current condition of the maritime assets in Warneet, and agreed to lead the development of the Warneet Boating Precinct Plan to start the conversation on how to improve the facilities in Warneet.

Once finalised, the Plan will guide future improvements.  The precinct plan will not commit asset managers to future funding responsibilities, but asset managers and government agencies will continue to work closely together to improve the condition of the maritime facilities located in Warneet.

You can have your say on the plan via an online survey until COB Monday, 18 October 2021.
