Repealed - State Environmental Planning Policy no. 14 - Coastal Wetlands

This is a repealed State Environmental Planning Policy and has been superseded by the State Environmental Planning Policy (Coastal Management) 2018. Please use this data accordingly.

Boundary data on more than 1500 coastal wetlands of State significance and covered by State Environmental Planning Policy No. 14 (SEPP 14) as defined in The Coastal Wetlands Survey Report, prepared by Dr P Adam, Mr N Urwin, Mr P Weiner and Mr I Sim for the Coastal Council of New South Wales, 1985. SEPP 14 places planning and development controls under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, 1979 over the wetlands, which are illustrated on 82 hard copy printed maps that have been gazetted. These hard copy maps are the definitive source of the wetland boundaries although digital representation is also available. Coverage extends along the NSW coastline (and up to 30 kms inland) from the Queensland border to the Hawkesbury River and from Wollongong to the Victorian Border. Note: SEPP 14 excludes the Sydney metropolitan region, that is, the Hawkesbury River to Wollongong.
