Hawkesbury Coastal Management Program Scoping Study

Six local councils are preparing a new management plan for the Hawkesbury River System covering the estuary and river between Yarramundi (the tidal limit of the river) and the estuary entrance between Box Head and Barrenjoey Head. The goal is to prepare a Coastal Management Program (CMP) that sets out the long-term strategy for the coordinated management of the coastal zone along the Hawkesbury. Partnering with Water Technology, Molino Stewart was engaged to undertake Stage 1 of the process which was the CMP Scoping Study including a first-pass risk assessment, stakeholder and community engagement, gaps analysis and a business case for the subsequent stages.
