This consultation has concluded. 

The need for a Foreshore Management Plan (FMP) was identified in the Marks Point and Belmont South Local Adaptation Plan (LAP), prepared by Council and residents in 2015-16. 

Following adoption of the LAP, Council and the community co-designed the draft Foreshore Management Plan (FMP) covering the lake foreshore areas of Belmont South and Marks Point. The draft FMP sought to provide clearer guidance and direction on how current foreshore issues (including erosion, seagrass wrack, drainage and public amenity/access) could be addressed whilst ensuring that planning for projected lake level rise will still take place. 

Council exhibited the draft FMP in July/August 2021. As a result of community feedback, the draft FMP was amended and presented to the Lake Macquarie Coastal Zone Management Committee. FMP findings and recommendations will inform the review of Council’s local development planning controls including the Lake Macquarie Development Control Plan and/or Council’s Foreshore/Coastal Protection Guidelines (under review in 2022/23).
