Boaters to have say on boat ramp management
The state government is encouraging boaters and facility managers to visit Better Boating Victoria’s new website to have their say on how recreational boating infrastructure is managed in our bays.
Minister for Fishing and Boating Jaala Pulford said the new website gives the boating community access to the Port Phillip and Western Port Boating Infrastructure Review Discussion Paper.
“We want to make boating across Port Phillip and Western Port bays better for everyone and it’s vital we get feedback from boaters and facility managers to help us improve the way we manage boating infrastructure.
“I encourage boating facility managers and users, as well industry groups, to take part in the consultation and tell us how we can better manage boating infrastructure in our bays.”
The Discussion Paper has been prepared by Deloitte, who were appointed to undertake the review in September this year.
The feedback received from the discussion paper consultation will inform improvements to boating infrastructure management options.
A summary report outlining the findings from the discussion paper consultation and the next steps in the review will be released early next year.
For more information about the Port Phillip and Western Port Boating Infrastructure Review Consultation, head to betterboating.vic.gov.au.
I would also like to remind everyone to keep those photos coming in of your big catch. Please forward photos to email@example.com with type of fish, weight, length, location and your name.
Also, if you see or suspect illegal fishing activity any time over summer, please call the 24-hour reporting line 13 FISH (13 3474).
