The Augusta-Walpole Coastal Strategy provides guidance on how various issues affecting the coast can be managed.
It addresses coastal tenure and management, settlement, tourism, coastal access, infrastructure, subdivision, development, and the protection of the environment and biodiversity.
It also provides detailed planning direction to local governments for updating planning schemes to ensure subdivision and development in the area does not threaten the environmental and landscape values of the coast. It promotes a coordinated approach by the three shires responsible for the area and provides a comprehensive framework for land use planning decisions.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
