Draft Werribee South Beach Master Plan

Wyndham City Council is currently seeking community input on the draft Werribee South Beach Master Plan which is a part of the implementation of the Wyndham Coastal & Marine Management Plan.

The draft plan was developed based on community consultation over recent years and aims to enhance the beach for residents and visitors while also protecting the environment.

Some of the improvements outlined in the plan include:

  • A new fishing deck with seating
  • New public toilets with facilities for people living with disabilities and accessible beach matting to the Main Beach shoreline
  • Additional picnic facilities, barbeque shelters and shade trees
  • A new wetland deck overlooking the Werribee River
  • Renewal of the Wyndham Bay Trail and additional walking paths
  • An updated playground
  • A dog off lead beach
  • Sand dune restoration areas
  • New summer overflow parking in Price Reserve

The new fishing deck is described as “The sweeping bend of Beach Rd around the steep cliff creates a tight space for the Bay Trail to reach the next beach. Local fishers use this point for its access to deep water. To widen the Bay Trail to 2.5m, a deck is proposed to extend over the existing rock revetment wall. This widens to a platform for fishers to give them safe space off of the trail, and an access ramp down to the beach.”

Public feedback will be used to assist in finalising the plan before it is presented to Council later this year.

Consultation closes 11.59pm, Wednesday 5 October 2022. Have your say by visiting the link below.
