Coastal reforms

The NSW Government is working to deliver a new legislative and regulatory framework to better equip coastal communities to respond to existing and emerging coastal challenges and opportunities.

The elements of the reform are new legislation - the Coastal Management Act 2016 – a draft coastal management manual and a draft Coastal Management State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP) with related maps.

The NSW Government will provide $83.6 million for coastal management over the next five years.
