Ocean Reef Marina
The public advertising period has closed
As part of the State environmental and planning assessment processes, the following documents were advertised for public submissions:
The public advertising period was open from 22 November 2016 to 24 February 2017.
The purpose of the public advertising was to enable members of the community to make submissions on the contents of the relevant documents and raise any issues of concern based on the contents of the documents.
The MRS Amendment deals with the land-based components of the Ocean Reef Marina. Amending the MRS will enable the land to be suitably zoned for the development of the marina as per the concept plan. MRS Amendment report and plans were available for public inspection and people were invited to make submissions to the Western Australian Planning Commission on the proposed amendment. For more information on the MRS Amendment process please visit the Department of Planning website.
The Public Environmental Review document was released as part of the Environmental Protection Authority's formal assessment of the Ocean Reef Marina. The document describes the project and examines the likely environmental effects and the proposed environmental management strategies to be put in place. For more information on the formal assessment process please visit the Environmental Protection Authority's eConsultation Hub.
