Chris Harty

Abstract


A planning methodology is outlined for the integrated protection of saltmarsh, mangrove and seagrass wetlands in New South Wales and Victoria. The planning methodology consists of a number of steps supported by statewide planning and statutory policy and wetland mapping to identify and locate the important wetlands.

The planning methodology comprises protective land use and waterway zoning and development control provisions for managing new land and waterway uses and developments. Followed by the development of management plans that can manage existing land and waterway uses and developments, which may affect saltmarsh, mangrove and seagrass wetlands.

Keywords: saltmarsh, mangrove, seagrass, wetlands, planning, methodology, zoning, development, management.
