Draft replacement of the Central Coast Water Sharing Plan
Public exhibition of the replacement Water Sharing Plan for the Central Coast Unregulated and Alluvial Water Sources 2021 ran from Monday 30 November 2020 until Sunday 14 February 2021 and is now closed.
The water sharing plan establishes rules for water management including the limit of the total volume of water that can be extracted from the water sources in the Central Coast area.
Water sharing plans are subject to review every 10 years under the Water Management Act 2000. The current water sharing plan for the Central Coast area is nearing expiry and a draft replacement plan has been prepared.
The public exhibition period provided opportunities for water users, stakeholders and other interested parties to learn more about the proposed changes in the draft plan, and to make a submission and comment on the draft. Feedback and issues raised during the public exhibition phase will be considered when finalising the plan.
The finalised replacement plan is proposed to take effect from 1 July 2021.
