Coastal Management Program

Port Stephens is home to the Port Stephens - Great Lakes Marine Park, which is twice the size of Sydney Harbour, as well as the largest moving coastal sand dunes in the southern hemisphere.


PSC Coastal Management Program

The coast is one of our greatest assets. It is a dynamic and diverse landscape with unique coastal values and resources that are vital to our way of life.

Our community values the coast for its environmental, social and economic benefits. But there are also many threats which have the potential to impact how out community enjoys the coast both now and in the future.

Council is developing a Coastal Management Program (CMP) to provide a framework for managing these priority coastal threats now and into the future so we can all enjoy the benefits of the coast for years to come.

Gaining an understanding of how the community uses and values the Port Stephens Coastal Zone is critical in getting the right balance in terms of management strategies into the future.

There will be lots of opportunities to have your say as this project develops. Keep your eye out for Council at upcoming community events where you can help us in the implementation of our CMP. Check back to this page in the coming weeks to find out more about how you can participate and provide your feedback to us online.

For more information on the CMP download the Port Stephens Council CMP Key Points Document.
