The Regional Coastal Plan sets out
how Environment Southland will carry out its resource management
responsibilities in the Coastal Marine Area (CMA).
The values of Southland's coast are described and issues of
management identified. Fundamental principles in the management of the
CMA are set out and then sections of the plan deal with specific
matters, including estuaries, coastal water, air, occupation, the seabed
and foreshore, structures in the coast, coastal processes and
protection works, cruise ships and other ships in internal waters,
recreational activities, marine farming, surface water activities,
financial contributions and bonds to be made.
The Regional Coastal Plan for Southland became fully operative on the 16 March 2013.
