This report outlines ideas for the urban development of Batavia Coast Marina Stage 2, situated in the City of Greater Geraldton, Western Australia. These ideas, formulated from emerging research and international best practice, have been integrated into a design that demonstrates how a water sensitive approach can address the water management, community wellbeing and infrastructure constraints at the Batavia Coast Marina site.

A key aim of the report is to model approaches that can have broader application across Geraldton or other regional centres as they move progressively toward the creation of more liveable, sustainable and resilient cities.
