The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries has completed a Perth Coastal Recreational Use Study. The study undertook an audit of recreational uses and infrastructure along Perth’s metropolitan coast between Rockingham and Yanchep.
The purpose of the project was to provide a baseline understanding of recreational use of the Perth coastline – drawing on existing information regarding coastal planning, site visits to determine location of existing and proposed infrastructure, and extensive consultation with coastal recreation stakeholders. The report contains maps and information that should be a valuable reference for discussion and decision making by coastal planners and managers generally, and recreation planners and stakeholders specifically.
The information presented is intended to help local government, sporting associations and recreation organisations to identify opportunities for future development and gaps in provision of recreational opportunities along the Perth coast.
