Guidelines for preparing coastal zone management plans

These guidelines are intended to provide guidance to local councils, their consultants and coastal communities on the preparation of a Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP). They have been adopted by the Minister for the Environment as guidelines under section 55D of the Coastal Protection Act 1979, and coastal councils are to prepare draft plans in accordance with these guidelines.

These guidelines supersede the December 2010 version of the guidelines published by the former Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water.
