Waterfront Strategy

Endorsed by Council in 2009, this strategy aims to re-position Richmond’s waterfront. The strategy's vision is that:

“Richmond is a community that celebrates its rich past and recognises the full potential of its island legacy – a dynamic, productive and sustainable world-class waterfront”.


The intent of the PDF Document Waterfront Strategy: Redefining Living on the Edge is:

  • To promote coordination and integration by increasing awareness of the complexity of managing the waterfront and of the need to work together to achieve the City’s overall Vision.
  • To provide a basis for developing policies to be included in the new Official Community Plan and for further work towards developing a detailed Waterfront Sustainability Strategy.
  • To establish a management approach to promote coordination and integration, and to monitor progress and success over the next three years.
