Evans Head Coastal Zone Management Plan
What is the project?Richmond Valley Council engaged local consultants, Hydrosphere Consulting, to develop a Coastal Zone Management Plan for the Evans Head Coastline and Evans River Estuary in accordance with the guidelines of the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. The Plan developed targeted coastline and estuary management strategies to address the priority management issues. These issues included:
- risks to public safety and built assets;
- pressures on coastal ecosystems; and
- managing community uses of the coastal zone.
The plan reviews and update the earlier Evans River Estuary Management Plan completed in 2002 and also incorporate management actions for the coastline and estuary considering predicted future climate change scenarios. The plan describes proposed actions to be implemented with the aim to deliver the greatest benefit to the community at least cost.
