Purpose The aims and objectives of this Policy are:(a) to encourage sustainable aquaculture, including sustainable oyster aquaculture, in the State, namely, aquaculture development which uses, conserves and enhances the community’s resources so that the total quality of life now and in the future can be preserved and enhanced, and (b) to make aquaculture development permissible in certain zones under the Standard Instrument, as identified in the NSW Land Based Sustainable Aquaculture Strategy, and (c) to set out the minimum site location and operational requirements for permissible aquaculture development (the minimum performance criteria), and (d) to establish a graduated environmental assessment regime for aquaculture development based on the applicable level of environmental risk associated with site and operational factors (including risks related to climate change, in particular, rising sea levels), and (e) to apply the Policy to land-based aquaculture development and oyster aquaculture development in the State and to include facility for extension of the Policy to natural water-based aquaculture.
