What is the draft CMP about?

We are currently developing a Coastal Management Program (CMP) for the estuaries of Arrawarra Creek, Pipe Clay Lake and Corindi River (the Northern Estuaries). The purpose of the CMP is to set the long term strategy for the management of the estuaries to improve and maintain their environmental, social, cultural and recreational values and manage the current and emerging issues.

Where we are up to

We are now in Stage 4 of the CMP process. Stage 4 will produce the final CMP. Following community and stakeholder consultation and the recommendations of technical studies we have developed a suite of Draft management actions for the CMP.

An initial list of potential management actions has been developed following an earlier survey, stakeholder consultation and technical study recommendations. Management actions include activities related to land use planning, foreshore management, stormwater and water quality outcomes, and environmental monitoring.

On Thursday 2 and Friday 3 March 2023, we held information sessions where key stakeholders and the community were invited to view the new displays of the draft management actions proposed to help improve and enhance these waterways. People were able to discuss the options with the team developing the Program and provide feedback.

Next steps

This is the final stage of the development of the Program and a final draft document is expected to be placed on public exhibition in 2024 for further community review and feedback.

It’s important to be aware that any management actions for the estuaries contained in the final Program will be dependent on the availability of future funding and resources and are shared across a number of different agencies.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Coffs Harbour City Council is currently developing a Coastal Management Program (CMP) for the estuaries of Arrawarra Creek, Pipe Clay Lake and Corindi River (the Northern Estuaries). The purpose of the CMP is to set the long term strategy for the management of the estuaries to improve and maintain their environmental, social, cultural and recreational values and manage the current and emerging issues.

    We are now in Stage 3 of the CMP process, which involves identifying specific option that can address the various threats and risks affecting the estuaries. The project team has developed an initial list of potential options, but we want to hear from the community on their thoughts regarding these options.

     We are asking for your help to:

    1. Provide feedback on the management options that have been proposed by the project team to date. This will involve stepping through a brief description of each option, and then providing feedback on whether 1) you support the option; 2) you are neutral or have no opinion; or 3) you do not support the option.


    2. Provide your suggestions and opinions for other potential management actions that you think should be included in the CMP.

    Once community feedback is received, the information will be used to help prioritise and rank management options. This process will also include weighing up their various benefits and costs against multiple criteria. We will then be able to identify the most effective, viable, and supported actions from the list. The result will be a condensed action list that will be included in the CMP. The community will have another opportunity to provide feedback on the condensed list of actions when the CMP goes to public exhibition in early-mid 2022.

    There are 20 questions to step through, and the survey should take around 30 minutes to complete. The survey will be open until 13th February 2022.
