Boost for WA Coastal Planning Projects

Twenty-nine communities across the State will share in $652,000 from the State Government to undertake projects to improve the condition and amenity of Western Australia’s coastline.

Projects range from seagrass monitoring in Broome, coastal dune restoration in Perth, reef fish monitoring in Albany and coastal risk and foreshore management plans for the Mid-West and Pilbara.

Planning Minister John Day said the funding helped to promote the sustainable use and development of the State’s highly valued coastline, now and into the future.

Our ongoing commitment to these programs reflects the importance of good coastal planning as well as on-ground management,” Mr Day said.

The projects will help improve the condition and amenity of the State’s coastline, promote sustainable development together with recreational and tourism use, and protect biodiversity and water quality in coastal zones.”

Every dollar invested through the Coastwest and Coastal Management Plan Assistance programs leverages almost three dollars in cash or in-kind contributions from the community and coastal managers such as local government.

The grants represent great value for the community with the total value of these projects, including State Government funding, being more than $2.25 million,” the Minister said.

The latest funding allocations support the revised State Coastal Planning Policy, which guides land use and development along WA’s coast.
