Mount Martha Foreshore Coastal and Marine Management Plan

After consultation with the community, Mornington Peninsula Shire has developed a draft Mount Martha Coastal and Marine Management Plan to protect and enhance the unique natural and cultural heritage of the Mount Martha foreshore reserve for present and future generations to enjoy.

The Coastal and Marine Management Plan establishes an agreement between the Victorian Government, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the community as to how the foreshore reserve will be managed.
