Draft Tourism Parking & Traffic Strategies
December 21, 2018
Notice of Exhibition of draft Colac Otway Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy and draft Kennett River Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy
Colac Otway Shire Council has prepared the draft Colac Otway Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy for Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek, Marengo, Wye River, Separation Creek, Lavers Hill, Forrest, and Kennett River. A draft of the Kennett River Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy has also been prepared as a standalone document for Kennett River.
The draft strategies will be on public exhibition from Monday 7 January to Friday 15 March 2019.
The strategies seek to outline the traffic and parking infrastructure requirements for the towns along the Great Ocean Road to cater for the growing number of tourists and challenges they present, whilst respecting valued characteristics of each town.
The strategies do not deal with the sections of the arterial road network between the towns which are the responsibility of State Government.
You may inspect the draft Colac Otway Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy or Kennett River Tourism Parking and Traffic Strategy free of charge, at the following locations during office hours:
Colac Otway Shire Council offices, 2–6 Rae Street, Colac; and

To assist Council in their response to submissions, it is useful to explain what parts of the Strategy the submission relates to, and explain any suggested changes and reasons for these changes.
