We have a vision for Moolap as an internationally important conservation and ecotourism area that is benefitting the Victorian community by protecting migratory birds, improving the health of Corio Bay, reconnecting people with nature and supporting ecologically sustainable coastal land use.
If Victoria can get the planning right at Moolap, the Moolap Planning Area can serve as:
- an environmental corridor and link along the Corio Bay foreshore and between central Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula
- a buffer between coastal and residential areas while providing protection for important biodiversity values
- a catalyst for longer-term and landscape-scale restoration across the Bellarine Peninsula and around Corio Bay.
This is a submission to the draft Moolap Coastal Strategic Framework Plan released on 19 April 2017.
