Council has worked with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to review the Coastal Zone Management Plan in response to changes in NSW legislation and improved information about coastal hazards.

As part of this review Council has also reviewed the 2011 hazards information to better define the coastal and geotechnical risks for the entire coast in the former Wyong Shire and revised hazards mapping.

This draft WCZMP 2017 provides practical actions to address the risk from coastal hazard and outlines actions to improve coastal hazard management.
