The NSW Government’s vision is for thriving and resilient communities living and working on a healthy coast, now and into the future.

The interaction of coastal processes and hazards, population growth, coastal lifestyles and sensitive natural environments creates complex challenges in managing the open coast and estuaries.

In response to these challenges, the NSW Government has established a new coastal management framework.
