THE Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is seeking community feedback on how they use the Patterson River area, and how it should be transformed.
DELWP is working to create a concept plan that will outline ways to improve the Patterson River infrastructure and facilities.
“The plan will guide future development and funding proposals along the land adjourning the river,” DELWP land and built environment program manager John Downs said.
“The area the project is looking at is between the Frankston train line and the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and includes the National Water Sports Centre.
“This project will address a number of issues in the area, as well as explore the area’s future potential.
“In the lower precinct, the boat ramp area is known to suffer congestion in peak boating and fishing periods. This has been causing issues not only for boat-ramp users and anglers but also those who use the area for cycling and walking.
“In the upper precinct, The National Water Sports Centre has the potential to be a high-quality recreational land and water sports facility, but a coordinated plan for the site’s development has yet to be developed.
“We are looking forward to hearing from the community, who will play an integral part of this project,” Mr Downs said.
The survey is open until 1 March.

The final concept plan is anticipated to be released at the end of June.
