Exhibition Extended for Coffs Harbor CZMP

The public exhibition period for the Draft Coastal Hazard Planning Control documents, currently out for community comment, is being extended until May 6 2015.

The exhibition period began on March 4th and was due to close on April 15th, but has now been increased for a further three weeks.

The documents include a draft Planning Proposal, Coastal Hazard Planning Policy and Development Control Plan amendments relating to Coastal Hazards.

The exhibition of these documents is the next step following the adoption in 2013 of a Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) for Coffs Harbor, which addressed the potential risks to the coastline from coastal erosion and inundation up to the year 2100.

The CZMP came up with 48 actions to address identified risks of erosion and inundation. These included beach and dune management, public assets management, environmental planning and further studies, monitoring and community education. The actions also included updating Council’s Coastal Hazard Policy, revising planning controls within Council’s Development Control Plan 2013 and amending Council’s Section 149 Certificates to address development in the coastal zone.

A number of community and landholder workshops have also been held as part of the community consultation since the exhibition began on March 4.
