Planning Proposal - Coastal Hazards

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​One of the high priority actions contained within the Coastal Zone Management Plan is the formulation of updated local policy and planning controls to address development affected by coastal hazards.  This action was seen as necessary as Council’s current Coastal Policy and planning controls are very simplistic and do not provide adequate guidance for the range of sea level rise scenarios, planning timeframes and hazard areas associated with the coastal zone. 

Council commenced a Coastal Hazard Planning Controls project in 2014 which proposes a new local Coastal Policy and a revised set of planning controls that will integrate the recommendations of all the previous work into Council’s Local Environmental Plan 2013 and Development Control Plan 2015. The coastal hazard areas identified for the different planning timeframes and sea level rise scenarios that are used in the planning controls have been defined in Council's Coastal Processes & Hazard Definition Study and Coastal Zone Management Plan.

All of the draft documents and maps included with the Coastal Hazard Planning Controls project were placed on public exhibition in early-mid 2015.  The public exhibition process included individual and public meetings, Councillor briefings and an invitation for the public to lodge submissions on the project.

On the 10th December 2015 Council deferred the progression of the Coastal Hazard Planning Controls project to allow for the NSW Coastal Reform process to unfold (see below).  On the 8th December 2016 Council, while considering issues relating to the NSW Coastal Reforms, resolved to consider a further report on the Coastal Hazard Planning Controls project following certification of the Coffs Harbour Coastal Zone Management Plan 2013 by the Minister for Planning (within the context of the final adopted Coastal Management Reforms).

The draft Coastal Hazard Planning Controls project documents that were subject to the public exhibition process (including all associated mapping) are shown below and include:

• PLANNING PROPOSAL;
• COASTAL HAZARD PLANNING POLICY; AND
• DEVELOPMENT CONTROL PLAN AMENDMENTS.
