Proposed new Coastal Management District

The Property Council’s submission on the proposed new Coastal Management District (CMD) highlighted particular concern on how the CMD and the recently released coastal hazard area mapping for the erosion prone area (EPA) and storm tide inundation area (STIA) will take effect through the land use planning framework. The submission emphasised the need for coastal planning requirements to be developed in conjunction with the Department of Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning within the existing policy framework to ensure the land use planning implications are considered in a holistic manner.
