Launching Way master plan, better for the bay

  Published May 2nd, 2017

Launching Way master plan to deliver better boating on Port Phillip Bay.

The Boating Industry Association of Victoria (BIAV) has launched the Launching Way Precinct Master Plan designed to create a better experience for recreational boaters at one of Victoria's busiest boat launching sites.

The Launching Way precinct on Port Phillip Bay precinct is a popular launching facility for fishing and boating enthusiasts from around the state as well as an important part of the local community at Carrum.

The new plan is designed to address key concerns at the site including options to reduce parking congestion and increase capacity, safety improvements, improved amenities and options for longer term strategies.

The master plan, which can be downloaded here, was developed over two years and funded by the Victorian State Government's Boating Safety Facilities Program.

“Improving public boat launching facilities for Victoria’s 191,000 recreational boaters is a priority for the Boating Industry Association and a key to growing our industry,” said BIAV president Mark Crockford.

“The starting point is always good planning and the Launching Way Precinct Master Plan delivers this and complements the Victorian State Government commitment to improved funding and planning for recreational boating facilities across the State.

“I commend the land and waterway managers Parks Victoria, Melbourne Water and Kingston City Council for their time and energy throughout the master planning process and admire their continued excellence in managing the jewel in the crown of Victoria’s public boat launching infrastructure,” he said.

The Master Plan process involved the formation of a steering committee comprised of representatives from the land managers of the precinct. This was followed by the formation of stakeholder reference group from the local community, clubs, Coast Guard and local residents who provided key inputs into the development of the plan.
