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 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 however then deferred the progression of the Coastal Hazard Planning Controls project to allow for the NSW Coastal Reform process to unfold.

With the NSW Coastal Reforms complete, and the Coffs Harbour Coastal Zone Management Plan certified, Council is now reviewing this project in the context of the new legislation.
