Southern ShoresSouth Coast Management Group was the lead body responsible for the development of Southern Shores 2001-2021: a strategy to guide coastal and marine planning and management in the South Coast Region of Western Australia.

In 1998 & 1999 funding was obtained by SCMG through the Commonwealth of Australia’s Natural Heritage Trust, Coast and Clean Seas program to administer two projects:

  • Phase 1 – South Coast Geographical Information System, which provided a raw database of spatial information to coastal planners and managers along the entire South Coast; and
  • Phase 2 – the Development of Southern Shores, which was to:
    • provide a vision upon which to focus future planning and management efforts;
    • outline community identified issues;
    • encourage cooperative involvement by community, government and relevant organisations in solution seeking and issue resolution;
    • provide guiding principles, strategic objectives and actions upon which to base future planning and management efforts; and
    • facilitate co-operative involvement.
