The Department of Planning and Environment and proposed new planning law reforms related to coastal management. The new policy will involve the introduction of Coastal Management State Environmental Planning Policy, which will replace the three existing State Environmental Planning Policies that relate to coastal management in NSW.
These planning policy reforms will introduce four new coastal management areas:
- coastal vulnerability area
- coastal use area
- coastal environment area
- coastal wetlands and littoral rainforests area
The NSW Government believes that the four separate areas will “enable more targeted management of the diversity of environments and interests in the coast.”
Submissions on these new planning law reforms can be made up until 23 December 2016.
