Help develop a plan to protect your favourite beaches and creeks


Our coastal areas face increasing pressure from population growth, urbanisation and climate change. We are at the early stages of developing a Coastal Management Program (CMP) for the Tweed coastal areas and your input is important in developing a program that will:

  • Protect surrounding wildlife and natural habitats
  • Monitor and respond to changes we see happening
  • Manage our natural resources such as fish and farmland
  • Guide the protection and conservation of our coastal areas

Thanks to our community who participated in a short survey to help us build on our understanding on what you love about your local beach or creek and how you would like to see it protected and managed for the next 10 years.


Why do we need a Coastal Management Program for the Tweed coastal areas?


A Coastal Management Program considers measures to manage natural resources, educate communities, and monitor and respond to coastal changes. It will help Council clearly identify and balance competing interests and priorities in the coastal zone. It also considers risks and vulnerabilities relating to coastal areas, and ultimately produces management actions to address a range of coastal hazards.

The CMP will cover the 37km long open coastline and includes the 13 Council managed beaches and three coastal estuaries that span from Duranbah beach in the north to Wooyung beach in the south.
