Following several months of community and stakeholder feedback, Council’s revised Coastal Zone Management Plan 2015-2023 and Four Year Action Plan are now available.

The revised Plan incorporates community and stakeholder feedback and includes a greater focus on Aboriginal cultural heritage and improved actions to protect the natural environment and maintain a healthy coastline, while continuing to provide for the recreational use of our beaches.

“Council’s Coastal Zone Management Plan 2015-2023 aims to preserve and enhance the environmental value of the coastline, estuary and channel amid increased visitation and pressure from urban development across the City,” Manager Sustainability Dr Alice Howe said.

“Many of the actions within the Four Year Action Plan are the responsibility of Lake Macquarie City Council, but a healthy coastal zone in a growing and active urban community is not achieved by the work of local governments alone.

“The Plan highlights the collaborative arrangements that we have with State agencies, businesses and residents, who are also key contributors to the ongoing success of coastal zone management within the City.”
