Chapter 6 of the Integrated Coastal Management Act (24of2008, amended by Act 36 of 2014) states that each coastal municipality in South Africa needs to prepare a Coastal Management Plan (CMP). It should be updated every 5 years (or as frequently as required).
The purpose of a CMP is to guide decisions related to land-use and management in the coastal zone, in order to achieve the objectives of ICMA, namely sustainable and appropriate coastal management. A municipality’s CMP needs to align with the National CMP and well as the Provincial CMP, while incorporating local level objectives and constraints.
CES has been appointed by the West Coast District Municipality to update and review the District and Local Municipalities CMPs.
The Draft West Coast Coastal Management Programme and the Coastal Management Programmes for each of the Local Municipalities are now available for public review and comment from the 1st July 2019 until 30th July 2019.
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR COMMENTS REACH US ON OR BEFORE 30 July 2019.
