The Regional Coastal Plan promotes sustainable management of natural and physical resources in the coastal marine areas and includes legally enforceable rules. The Plan is currently under review.
Please also refer to the Interim Version of the Proposed Coastal Plan, whose operative rules may supersede those of this current Coastal Plan.
All rules in the Interim Version are now operative apart from those relating to oil and gas activities, which are under appeal in the Environment Court.
