Coastal Management

Georges River Council, in partnership with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s Coastal and Estuary Grants Program have developed the Draft Georges River Foreshore Access and Improvement Plan. The Plan will be integral to the delivery of resilient estuarine ecosystems and vibrant communities along the foreshore areas of the Georges River within the Georges River Local Government Area (LGA).

The draft Georges River Foreshore Access and Improvement Plan focuses on the 18.5 kilometres of publicly owned foreshore currently managed by Georges River Council. This foreshore area extends from Captain Cook Bridge, Sans Souci to Riverwood Park on Saltpan Creek Riverwood.

The draft Plan has identified locations of publicly owned foreshore suitable for enhanced recreational access and links between key foreshore assets, opportunities to create resilient estuarine ecosystems and liveable community places.

Your opportunity to comment on this plan shoudl be made by 3 August 2020 by visiting Your Say Georges River.


To protect local natural assets, we are working in partnership with seven other Councils on the Georges Riverkeeper to ensure we have a clear direction on the future of the Georges River estuary. 

The Georges River Coastal Zone Management Plan will allow us to: 

  • Accommodate sustainable population growth and resource utilisation

  • Enhance cooperation between councils, agencies and stakeholders

  • Gain community support and acceptance on managing the estuary

  • Improve public access and amenity

  • Obtain funding to carry out works

  • Prioritise what needs to be done to better manage the estuary

  • Protect important coastal habitats, features and heritage items

  • Rehabilitate degraded areas.
