This exhibition is now closed. Thank you to everyone who made a submission. The project team are currently reviewing all feedback and will report back soon.

The need for the draft Foreshore Management Plan (FMP) was identified in the Marks Point and Belmont South Local Adaptation Plan prepared by Council and residents in 2015-16. Residents wanted clearer guidance and direction on how current issues including foreshore erosion, seagrass wrack and public amenity / access could be addressed whilst ensuring that planning projected lake level rise will still take place.

The next steps in implementing the Local Adaptation Plan and draft Foreshore Management Plan are:

  • Collating and reviewing feedback received on the draft Foreshore Management Plan in collaboration with the community working group
  • Reporting to the Lake Macquarie Coastal Zone Management Committee on the exhibition of the draft and any recommended changes to the final FMP
  • Incorporating FMP findings and recommendations into relevant Council planning instruments including the Lake Macquarie Development Control Plan and or Foreshore Management Guidelines.

Exhibition closed 8 August 2021.
