State of the Environment Report

The second Regional State of the Environment report (SoE) has been released for the North Coast region of NSW.

The Regional SoE 2016 reports on environmental condition at a regional level, covering the local government areas (LGA) from Port Macquarie-Hastings in the south to Tweed in the north, which together form the North Coast Region of NSW.

The Report is a result of a collaboration between 12 general councils, Rous County Council  and NSW government agencies including North Coast Local Land Services, Office of the Environment and Heritage (OEH), Department of Primary Industries (DPI), DPI Water and the Office of Local Government.

A summary of the Coffs Harbour LGA is also available which highlights the main trends within our local government area.
