Lower Hawkesbury Estuary Management Plan 2009
The Lower Hawkesbury Estuary Management Plan provides strategic management for the estuary from Wisemans Ferry to Broken Bay excluding Pittwater and Brisbane Water. This plan was adopted by Hornsby Shire Council on the 11th March, 2009 and by Gosford City Council on the 18th March, 2009.
This document fulfils the requirements of the NSW Estuary Management Policy 1992 and the NSW Coastal Policy 1997. The plan contains a list of recommended strategies that have been prioritised according to the goals and objectives identified during workshops which were attended by members of the Berowra and Brooklyn Estuary Management Committees, key stakeholder groups and government agencies.
The plan includes timeframes, costs, responsibilities, measurables and other information related to each of the strategies and will direct Councils investment and strategic direction for estuary management for the next 10 years.
The plan also provides a mechanism for future monitoring and evaluation of the success of the plan’s implementation, along with contingencies in the event that specific targets and/or overarching goals and objectives are not met. The implementation of this Plan is overseen by the Lower Hawkesbury Estuary Management Committee.
