This workshop will explain the main environmental and planning laws that affect coastal communities, with a focus on recent changes to the Coastal Protection Act relating to sea level rise and erosion works.
This workshop is for anyone interested in learning more about how the various environmental and planning laws interact, how they apply to coastal communities, and how governments and coastal communities are responding to the challenges of climate change. This is an interactive workshop with discussion of current development proposals and planning processes in the Coffs Harbour area.
All participants will receive a free copy of the new EDO publication, Caring for the Coast: A guide to environmental law for coastal communities in NSW . This booklet can be downloaded to read before the workshop from http://www.edo.org.au/edonsw/site/publications.php#coast. This publication has been funded by the Australian Government though its Caring for Our Country initiative.
