Coastal Management Plan

Coastal Management Planning 2018

Coastal Councils in NSW are required to prepare coastal zone management plans under NSW Government coastal legislation. Shoalhaven Council’s Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) 2012 was prepared under the NSW Coastal Protection Act 1979. This Act has been replaced by the NSW Coastal Management Act 2016 as part of a reform of the NSW coastal management laws.
