You will require this consent if you are a land owner and you intend to carry out long-term development relating to coastal protection works.
Coastal protection works aim to reduce the impact of coastal hazards on land adjacent to tidal waters and includes seawalls, groynes revetments and beach nourishment.
Please be aware that when your local Council has a coastal zone management plan in place you should contact them before submitting an application. If no plan is in place, then you should contact the State Agency.
If you intend to reduce the impacts of coastal erosion on your property during small storm events, then you should apply for a Temporary Coastal Protection Works Approval.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information
