The State Government has released a new interactive map which allows residents to check Council’s progress on preparing three Coastal Management Programs (CMPs) for the region,
Council is working on CMPs for Tuggerah Lakes, Open Coast and Coastal Lagoons (which includes The Entrance North, Terrigal and Wamberal Beach).
Minister for Local Government, Shelley Hancock, said the new map would allow the community to see what work was underway to help manage local coastlines.
“Now our coastal communities can jump online and easily see progress on their council’s CMP, as well as how many grants their council has received through the NSW Government’s Coastal and Estuary Program,” Hancock said.
“In addition to links to the relevant local council’s website for more information, the new map has clickable colour-coded icons to reflect which stage in the process the CMP is up to.
“It’s a valuable asset that is going to help facilitate local communities to engage even more with councils and their efforts to protect and preserve their precious coastline.”
