Clontarf Waterford Salter Point Foreshore Masterplan

News Update 5 September 2017

The Clontarf-Waterford-Salter Point (CWSP) Foreshore is an extensive area of natural reserves, estuarine conservation wetlands and public open space that occupy approximately 34 hectares of Canning River foreshore land.

The foreshore areas from Clontarf through to Waterford and Salter Point are known as the Canning River wetlands. These are the most extensive estuarine wetlands in the lower reaches of the Swan and Canning Rivers, providing the largest habitat area for many wildlife species.

In recognition of the CWSP Foreshore’s ecological, cultural and recreational  values, the City will develop a masterplan to provide a consolidated management strategy for this foreshore.

The masterplan will be the City’s strategic guiding document for recreation, restoration and rehabilitation works on the CWSP foreshore that address current and future management issues. 

Consultation has commenced for stage one of the masterplanning process. The City will engage the local community and key stakeholders to explore their vision on current foreshore management and short, medium and longer term landscaping possibilities to reflect user needs.

At the end of stage one, a concept for the masterplan will be developed as the foundation for the master plan.
