North Metropolitan Aquatic Use Review: Questionnaire

Thank you for participating in the North Metropolitan Aquatic Use Review (AUR).

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 two proposals identified in stakeholder consultation would enhance safety for all water users.

DoT's Navigational Safety team has developed a short survey to guide your feedback.

The survey should take approximately five minutes to complete and responses are confidential. Should you have any problems completing the survey please contact Chris Mather, Team Leader Navigational Safety on (08) 9435 7907.

The AUR encompasses the coastline of the Perth North Metropolitan Area extending from Two Rocks to North Fremantle.

Map 1 - Proposal 1

To establish a new area that is closed to motorised vessels to provide greater safety to future users of the proposed Dive Trail at Marmion Beach. The proposed Dive Trail is planned for waters adjacent to the Marmion Angling and Aquatic Club by the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (DBCA).

Map 1 - Proposal 2

To reduce the 6 knot restricted speed zone to 5 knots at Hillarys Boat Harbour. A 5 knot speed restriction is consistent with the limit applied at the majority of small boat harbours in WA.
