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 are now available for public inspection and people may make submissions to the Western Australian Planning Commission on the proposed amendment. Visit the Department of Planning website for more information on making submissions and to view the Ocean Reef Marina MRS Amendment report and plans.
The Public Environmental Review document has been 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. Effective submissions must be made to the Environmental Protection Authority and should address the contents of the Public Environmental Review document.

Ocean Reef Marina Community Forums
The City conducted two Community Forums early December 2016 to give community members and stakeholders the opportunity to find out more about the project, the current State environmental and planning assessment processes and State Government involvement in the project. Attended by approximately 250 interested community members, a question and answer sessions was also held. Chaired by Mayor Pickard, the Q & A panel consisted of Chief Executive Officer Garry Hunt and members of the Ocean Reef Marina Project Team.
