Warrnambool Foreshore Framework Plan

In September 2023 Council started work on a Warrnambool Foreshore Framework Plan.

The purpose of the Framework Plan is to provide an overarching planning framework for the Warrnambool foreshore area, bringing together previous planning projects and providing an integrated vision for the precinct. The Plan will help inform long term objectives and funding priorities for the Warrnambool Foreshore.

The Framework Plan will consider social, economic and environment values of the precinct. It will be informed by a multi-stage community and stakeholder consultation, existing conditions analysis, and issues and opportunities assessment. The environmental landscape context will be an important influence on the development of the plan. 

Council anticipates the duration of the project to be up to a year.

The Foreshore precinct sits to the south of Warrnambool’s Central Business district, bordering the Lady Bay and southern ocean. It sits between the outlet of the Merri River at Stingray Bay to the west, and the Flume access point off Merri Street to the east. It is bordered by Pertobe Road to the north.
