North Metropolitan Aquatic Use Review

The Department of Transport (DoT) is proposing changes to the management of waters off the Perth North Metropolitan Area and is seeking your feedback.

The Department of Transport (DoT) has embarked on a systematic review of aquatic use of waters off the metropolitan coast to ensure the safe, equitable and sustainable use of this coastal area.

The North Metropolitan Aquatic Use Review (AUR) focuses on maximising community benefit and amenity of the coastline from Two Rocks to North Fremantle.

There are two proposed changes to the aquatic management of the area including:

  • the creation of a new closed water motorised vessel area at Marmion Beach to provide greater safety for users of a soon to be established dive trail; and,
  • a reduction in the speed limit within Hillarys Boat Harbour from 6 knots to 5 knots to improve overall navigational safety.

As part of the DoT’s AUR process, comment on the proposals was invited from key stakeholders and the wider community.

Thank you to those who provided feedback as part of our online survey.

The survey is now closed. All comments received are currently being assessed by DoT prior to any changes being made and formally gazetted as law.
