Sydney Harbour CMP Information Session
On 28 February 2019, Sydney Coastal Councils Group with support from the Office of Environment and Heritage(OEH), hosted a Sydney Harbour Coastal Management Program Information Session for relevant local councils and public authorities.
The Information Session was opened by the SCCG Executive Officer, Sarah Joyce, and comprised of two presentations (presentation slides linked below):
- OEH – Overview of the NSW Coastal Management Framework
- BMT – Overview of the Greater Sydney Harbour Estuary Coastal Management Program Scoping Study
The Presentations were followed by a ‘where to from here’ session with attendees asked to identify barriers to the development of a Sydney Harbour CMP, the way forward in developing a CMP, and their willingness to collaborate on a Sydney Harbour CMP.
The Information Session concluded with a Q&A.
