Clontarf–Waterford–Salter Point, Foreshore Master Plan
The City of South Perth in 2017 commenced a master planning process to guide future activities and management along the Clontarf, Waterford and Salter Point foreshores’ (CWSPF) in response to an identified need for a consolidated management strategy.
The foreshore areas from Clontarf through to Waterford and Salter Point are known as the Canning River wetlands. These estuarine wetlands are the most extensive wetlands in the lower reaches of the Swan and Canning Rivers and are considered to be environmentally significant.
To inform this master plan, we embarked on a significant campaign of community and stakeholder consultation. This consultation was essential in developing the master plan.
The master plan will drive effective coordination of investment and implementation of foreshore improvements, by synthesizing all current work, community and stakeholder aspirations into a single document.
It provides an integrated approach to project delivery across the foreshore into the future and identifies the most appropriate combination of uses for the CWSPF, while maintaining and preserving the environmental and heritage values of the area and its surrounds.
