Draft planning circular: advice on coastal hazards

The NSW Government has issued a Planning Circular that gives councils clear advice on how buyers of coastal properties should be informed about hazards such as erosion and flooding.

The Circular advises councils to identify up front whether the type of hazard affecting a parcel of land is a current hazard or a future hazard.

It follows a briefing session with coastal councils and a public exhibition period earlier this year. The Department received 70 submissions, and these were considered before the Circular was finalised.
