November, 11, 1997, marked another milestone in the NSW government’s environmental agenda. The long-awaited Coastal Policy was released by the Minister for Urban Affairs and Planning, Mr. Craig Knowles. This is the third element of the environmental agenda after the packages on forestry and waterways.
Revision of the previous Government’s Coastal Policy was initially undertaken by the Coastal Committee in 1994 and has been the subject of modification over the past 3 years. It has involved wide community consultation and input. The ALP election promises of 1995 have been incorporated in the Policy, for instance the banning of canal estates.
