University of Melbourne’s National Centre for Coasts and Climate

On 15 April, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was established between the Department of Environment, Land, Planning and Water (DELWP) and the University of Melbourne.

The purpose of the MOU is to:

  • provide a mechanism for the University of Melbourne to secure $2.1 million of available Federal funding for marine science related research of relevance to the park
  • establish a working relationship for the sharing of ‘regulatory and policy information’ relevant to the facility
  • facilitate the University of Melbourne’s preparation of a final proposal for a National Centre for Coasts and Climate research facility at Point Nepean National Park.

As stated in the MOU, DELWP and the University of Melbourne will explore “the potential to establish an education and research facility in a manner that will not be detrimental to the protection of the park, including its natural, Indigenous, historic, cultural landscape and recreational values.”
