Mornington Harbour – Local Port Area Plan​ Project

Have your say on the draft plan that will guide the future for the Mornington Harbour.

Parks Victoria is developing a plan to guide the future use and management of Mornington Harbour local port area. The plan focuses on the ‘on water’ aspects and use and aims to define a safer entrance channel for vessels, provide direction regarding the future of the pier and jetty infrastructure and swing moorings and berths, currently managed by Parks Victoria within the harbour. It will also consider the needs of large vessel access and new infrastructure to support changing uses and needs.  

Parks Victoria have released a draft plan which was developed using information provided by stakeholders and user groups earlier this year.

The draft plan proposes three different functional options that offer a scaled response to the following considerations:  

  • Impacts of climate change   
  • Maritime safety and compliance with the relevant standard for channels   
  • Location and number of berths and moorings    
  • Pier and jetty infrastructure for improved access   
  • Needs of on water recreational and commercial users  
  • Provision for large vessels  
  • Historical and cultural values  

The community is invited to view the draft plan and complete an online survey to provide feedback on the proposed plan.

Consultation via the online survey closes Friday 8 December 2023.

Parks Victoria will use community feedback to inform the final plan due for release in early 2024.  

An Engagement Summary Report will be developed from feedback, shared on this page and distributed to those who have provided their email contact during the consultation process.
