The CZMP 2012 remained in draft form until 2018. The reasons for this are outlined in the figure below and relate to the NSW Government Coastal Reforms, Stages 1 & 2.
Following a detailed review and update of the CZMP 2012, it was forwarded to the NSW Minister for the Environment and certified as the 2018 Coastal Zone Management Plan for the Shoalhaven Coastline in June 2018.
Coastal management plans are required by NSW legislation to focus on managing the risks associated with coastal hazards. The map below shows the locations of all the actions in the CZMP 2018.
