Overview

The Patterson River area has been brought to DELWP’s attention as having a number of issues that need resolving.

In the Lower Precinct, the boat ramp area is known to suffer congestion in peak boating and fishing periods, causing issues for boat-ramp users and the general public (such as cyclists, walkers, etc) alike. Launching Way is also home to non powered boating clubs. In the past, there have been plans for this area developed that focus on one or two interest areas.

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.

DELWP is responding to these community concerns by speaking with the community and stakeholders in order to create a Concept Plan that will outline ways to improve the infrastructure and facilities on the Patterson river in the future.

The concept plan will help guide future development and funding proposals along the Patterson river.
