Contaminated Land Policy

In New South Wales local government manages contamination whilst performing duties as a planning authority, public land manager and as regulatory authority. This Policy provides a framework through which Council will manage land contamination within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area. The Coffs Harbour Contaminated Land Policy defines the principles that Coffs Harbour City Council is committed to upholding when performing Council functions. This Policy observes a cautionary approach and promotes processes that ensure land contamination is identified and dealt with at the earliest possible opportunity whilst carrying out planning, regulatory and land management activities.
