Part 7 Clause 7.5
7.5   Coastal risk planning
(1)  The objectives of this clause are as follows—
(a)  to avoid significant adverse impacts from coastal hazards,
(b)  to ensure uses of land identified as coastal risk are compatible with the risks presented by coastal hazards,
(c)  to enable the evacuation of land identified as coastal risk in an emergency,
(d)  to avoid development that increases the severity of coastal hazards.
(2)  This clause applies to the land identified as “Coastal risk” on the Coastal Risk Planning Map.
(3)  Development consent must not be granted to development on land to which this clause applies unless the consent authority is satisfied that the development—
(a)  is not likely to cause detrimental increases in coastal risks to other development or properties, and
(b)  is not likely to alter coastal processes and the impacts of coastal hazards to the detriment of the environment, and
(c)  incorporates appropriate measures to manage risk to life from coastal risks, and
(d)  is likely to avoid or minimise adverse effects from the impact of coastal processes and the exposure to coastal hazards, particularly if the development is located seaward of the immediate hazard line, and
(e)  provides for the relocation, modification or removal of the development to adapt to the impact of coastal processes and coastal hazards, and
(f)  has regard to the impacts of sea level rise.
(4)  A word or expression used in this clause has the same meaning as it has in the NSW Coastal Planning Guideline: Adapting to Sea Level Rise (ISBN 978-1-74263-035-9) published by the NSW Government in August 2010, unless it is otherwise defined in this clause.
(5)  In this clause—
coastal hazard has the same meaning as in the Coastal Management Act 2016.
