Prevelly Foreshore Management Plan

  1. 1. CAPE MENTELLE TO GAS BAY DEVELOPMENT COCEPT PLAN
  2. 2. COASTAL RESERVE AREAS MANAGED BY THE SHIRE Gracetown Prevelly Dead Finish/Flinders Bay East Augusta Margaret River Town Site
  3. 3. PREVELLY SECTOR <ul><li>Extends over a distance of approximately 5 km </li></ul><ul><li>The area generally provides access to surfing, fishing, swimming and other recreational opportunities </li></ul><ul><li>Offers spectacular views </li></ul><ul><li>The reserve is vested in the Shire for recreation purposes </li></ul><ul><li>Is an A-Class Reserve. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Development Direction <ul><li>The Shire’s Local Planning Strategy identifies the following policy statements for development in the Prevelly Sector: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure compatibility with the protection of natural coastal resources; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be complementary to the surrounding coastal landscape; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cater for projected increases in usage; and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Existing Foreshore Management Plan should be monitored, reviewed and updated on a five yearly basis. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Foreshore Development Concept Plan (DCP) <ul><li>The DCP is to provide an agreed framework for the development of facilities and infrastructure to address: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the needs of the local community, as well as visitors, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in a way which is safe, functional, visually attractive, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>in balance with the natural attributes of the area. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Provide guidance to the Shire in relation to funding allocations and programming of works. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Management Principles <ul><li>Environmental </li></ul><ul><li>Natural habitats, particularly areas of high biodiversity, should be protected. </li></ul><ul><li>Disturbance of coastal vegetation shall be minimised and degraded areas should be revegetated. </li></ul><ul><li>Local indigenous plant species should be utilised in revegetation areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Places of unique landscape and scientific and cultural significance shall be conserved and managed. </li></ul><ul><li>The physical stability of the coast should be considered before any development takes place. </li></ul><ul><li>Public Interest </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure that opportunities are provided for the community to participate in coastal planning and management. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide sustainable level of access to beaches and discouragement of access to sensitive and dangerous areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Maintain and enhance the public enjoyment of the coast where this is compatible with environmental objectives and meets requirements for public safety. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure public open spaces cater for families and people of all ages. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure sufficient opportunities are provided for access to facilities by people with disabilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Development </li></ul><ul><li>Development should be durable, of high quality, low in maintenance and sympathetic to the natural environment. </li></ul><ul><li>A uniform theme in terms of design, materials should be established. </li></ul><ul><li>A uniform approach for signage should be adopted. </li></ul><ul><li>Development shall be confined to existing nodes and should not sprawl along the coast. </li></ul><ul><li>Effluent discharge should not pollute the beach or near-shore waters. </li></ul><ul><li>Infrastructure should be to a scale which is consistent with the capacity of a locality. Large continuous paved areas should be avoided. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Community Expectations <ul><li>Keep impact on the natural environment to a minimum </li></ul><ul><li>Character of the area should be maintained </li></ul><ul><li>Large paved areas should be avoided </li></ul><ul><li>Upgrade of ablution facilities at Rivermouth and Surfers Point should be kept low key </li></ul><ul><li>The development of Surf Life Saving Club should be at Gnarabup Oval, not Rivermouth </li></ul><ul><li>Stormwater should be appropriately managed </li></ul><ul><li>Traffic calming measures should be introduced </li></ul><ul><li>Management of bus traffic at Rivermouth and Surfers Point carparks </li></ul><ul><li>Traditional owners must be considered before development starts </li></ul><ul><li>Signage should be consolidated. Ad-hoc signage should be avoided </li></ul><ul><li>Community art to be utilised in areas like Riflebutts Reserve and Gnarabup Oval. </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainable level of access to foreshore should be provided. Access should be managed through fencing and brushing. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Community Expectations <ul><li>Illegal camping is already a major problem and upgrading facilities and ablutions will exacerbate the problem. Policing required. </li></ul><ul><li>Views from the carpark at Surfers Point must be protected. </li></ul><ul><li>Overall support for a pedestrian path through Surfers Point </li></ul><ul><li>Development of a community facility at Gnarabup Oval. </li></ul><ul><li>No parking close to the Riflebutts oval. Support continued use for overflow parking during events. </li></ul>
