Planning Surf Life Saving's Future

The Future Opportunities for Surf Life Saving Project aims to develop a shared vision for local surf life saving’s future expectations.

The planning process responds to changes in demand for surf life saving activities and clubs, growing residential and seasonal population and visitation, new land management policies and procedures, and a wide range of community

The project will gather informaiton and views to guide the future provision, use, management and investment in the development of surf life saving and associated clubs, facilities and water safety education / rescue services in the Shire. It also aims to develop the understanding and interactions that surf life saving clubs have with agencies and the community, so that there are shared aspirations and objectives.

The project will have several stages, with a final report expected in mid-2015. It is being run by Council in cooperation with Life Saving Victoria, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (the agencies). These agencies form the Project Control Group.

The project is co-funded by the Victorian Government Putting Locals First Funding Program in conjunction with Life Saving Victoria, Surf Coast Shire Council and Great Ocean Road Coast Committee.

More information on the project can be found on the Surf Coast Shire website
