Help us to understand how the community values our Coastal Parks, Reserves and Foreshores

We are very fortunate to have a long and beautiful coastline. The coast and the ocean are absolutely central to our lifestyle, identity and economy.

Also important are our coastal parks, reserves and foreshores – through which we get to the coast and the ocean, and which in their own right are also central to our lifestyle, identity and economy. Coastal parks, reserves and foreshores also play a valuable role in protecting our homes and infrastructure from coastal erosion and flooding, as well as being a home for native plants and animals.


Management plans for the future

The City has developed plans that guide the management of most of our coastal parks, reserves and foreshores. Many of those plans, though, were developed ten or more years ago, and they are due for review.

To inform those reviews and to help guide management of our coastal parks, reserves and foreshores into the future, this survey has been developed to obtain information about how people use the coast and coastal land, and what people consider to be most valuable about those places.


Share your thoughts

In this survey, the coast has been split into a number of sections, and you can choose which sections of the coast you comment on. There are some areas of the City’s coast not included in the survey, mostly because they have more recent management plans and/or have a clear and distinct character. The areas not included are the Forrest Beach area, the Central Busselton Foreshore area, and the Cape Naturaliste and western coastline, beyond Dunsborough (and which includes Meelup Regional Park, the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, as well as the settlements of Eagle Bay, Bunker Bay, Yallingup and Smiths Beach).


We look forward to your feedback, which we are sure will be of great assistance to the City in guiding future management of our coast.

Submissions close: Sunday 13 September
