We held an online information session to provide detail on the Ocean Reef Marina project and Improvement Scheme.
Following approval of the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) amendment and Gazettal of an Improvement Plan late last year, the WA Planning Commission (WAPC) have prepared an Improvement Scheme to facilitate delivery of the long-awaited Ocean Reef Marina.
An Improvement Scheme is an alternative to traditional planning frameworks and is specifically designed for complex and strategic projects. It allows planning to be tailored to the challenges and opportunities of a specific site, rather than being restricted by a generic, state-wide framework.

The WAPC public comment period on the Ocean Reef Marina Improvement Scheme closed on 26 June 2020.
Let's rock the boat
We recently brought together a room of experts - from local and State Government, through to university professors and technology providers - to brainstorm 'smart technology' ideas for Ocean Reef Marina.
Ideas were centred around 12 different 'personas', representing the types of people who will use the marina, including:
Boating and fishing enthusiasts
Residents of the marina and surrounding area - school students, families and older residents
Future workers in the marina - retail owners and office workers
Local government representatives
Visitors to the marina - international tourists and residents of the broader metropolitan area
Check out the video below for a visual recording of the workshop discussion.
Refined Concept Plan
Ocean Reef Marina is set to become a world-class waterfront precinct providing recreational, tourism, residential and boating facilities for local residents and visitors alike.
We have refined the Concept Plan based on feedback from the community and to make sure we can deliver a truly world-class marina development.
The changes to the plan will ensure the marina is:
Appropriate for the location;
Providing the amenities and features the community wants;
