Australia: NSW Coastal planning guideline - adapting to sea level rise

This Guideline has been prepared to provide guidance on how sea level rise is to be considered in land use planning and development assessment in coastal NSW. Other
climate parameters affecting coastal processes may be considered when preparing coastal and flood risk studies.

The aim of this Guideline is to promote ecologically sustainable development (ESD), and in particular to encourage a precautionary approach to land use planning and development assessment in light of potential sea level rise impacts in coastal areas. This Guideline therefore adopts a risk-based approach to planning and development assessment in coastal areas.
