The Western Coastal Board is holding a forum to outline its draft plan for the region and seek community feedback.

Chaired by Moyne Shire councillor Jill Parker, the board has eight members, including south-west tourism administrator Carole Reid and Professor John Sherwood from Deakin University in Warrnambool. The draft plan was released for public comment last month and submissions close on March 20.

Cr Parker said the public meeting, at Proudfoots on the River from 6pm, would be a good chance to present information and get feedback.

“There will be a presentation on what the draft plan is about but the main thing is we will be there to listen and not preach,” Cr Parker said.

“We would love to hear from groups or organisations with an interest as well as individuals who use the coast.

“The long-term aim of the final plan is to create a document that is a guideline for how we best use and look after our coastline. There have been smaller local-level plans done before but this is the first big regional plan so it does bring some challenges with it.

To comment on the draft plan, email [email protected] or write to PO Box 103, Geelong, 3220. The draft plan can be viewed online at www.wcb.vic.gov.au
