The George Town Coastal Management Group, George Town Council, Tamar NRM and the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania have endorsed the actions for the management of the George Town Coastal area and are committed to working in partnership for the full implementation of this action plan.
Through workshops and consultation, the coastal communities of Bellingham, Weymouth, Lulworth, Tam O’Shanter, Beechford, Bellbuoy Beach, Low Head and Hillwood have identified priority works for the protection and restoration of the places they live, work and recreate in.
This action plan presents the latest reviewed on-ground works consistent with aims of the George Town Coastal Management Plan (2005), which was the first truly community driven coastal management plan in Tasmania. It is an important resource to guide future community action and assist government and local planning authorities in the ongoing management of coastal areas within the George Town municipality.
“Communities and management authorities working together to protect, enhance and sustainably manage the natural values of our coastal area for recreation and conservation into the future.”
