11 November 2015 Help Protect Arrawarra Creek

A draft plan of management to enhance and protect Arrawarra Creek is being developed and everyone is invited to a first stage community workshop on Thursday November 18.

 

The workshop, which will be held at Darlington Beach Holiday Park will look at the initial development of a draft Arrawarra Creek Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP).  

 

The workshop will cover issues such as creek bank erosion, creating walkway networks along the creek foreshores, addressing pollution from rural and urban properties and enhancing vegetation along the creek banks.

 

Council is particularly keen to hear which aspects of the creek are highly valued by residents and the wider community, which might need closer management and also ideas for future use and conservation.

 

Council is developing the plan in association with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.  Consultants BMT WBM have been engaged to prepare the plan.

 

Development of the CZMP will take approximately 18 months and will involve community consultation, assessing existing data, identifying information gaps, and technical studies to understand the estuary health of Arrawarra Creek.

 

The final plan will form the basis of applications for grant funds to put the strategies into action.

 

The Community Drop–in Session will be held from 3:30pm-6pm on Thursday, November 19, at Darlington Beach Holiday Park Conference Room.
