Sorrento Coastal and Marine Management Plan

The Mornington Peninsula Shire has developed and adopted the Sorrento Coastal and Marine Management Plan to support the improvement and management of Sorrento foreshore. The plan was adopted by Council on 11 December 2018. 

The plan supports the improvement and management of Sorrento foreshore based on the following themes:

  • Natural systems
  • Cultural heritage
  • Recreation
  • Safe access and use
  • Infrastructure and buildings
  • Climate change adaptation
  • Commercial operators, tourism and events
  • Community awareness and involvement

The Sorrento foreshore, for the purpose of the Coastal and Marine Management Plan project, includes the coastal crown land from the western side of 3098 Point Nepean Road, Sorrento, to the foreshore opposite 3440 Point Nepean Road, Sorrento.

The Plan has been approved by the Minister pursuant to Section 61 of the Marine and Coastal Act 2018, making the Sorrento CMMP the first in the state approved under the new legislation.
