Siting and design guidelines for structures

The Siting and design guidelines for structures on the Victorian coast have been updated for 2020. The guidelines outline the best practice for the design of structures on the Victorian coast.

The guidelines are for individuals and groups to use when planning projects on the coast and will support sustainable development. They address the threats of climate change and population growth as well as helping to care for Victoria’s coast so we can continue to use and enjoy it now and into the future.

The guidelines are to be used alongside the Victorian Marine and Coastal Policy, which outlines the directions for planning and managing Victoria’s coastlines and marine environment.
