Great Lakes Council with assistance from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) is preparing a Coastal Zone Management Plan for the beaches of Great Lakes. The Plan will provide practical actions to address the risks from coastal hazards to the beach, and land and assets behind the beach.


The beaches between Black Head and Hawks Nest are included in this Plan, including One Mile Beach, the beaches of Seal Rocks, and Forster Main Beach. Blueys, Boomerang and Jimmys beaches are not included in this Plan because separate Plans are already underway for these beaches.


All of Great Lakes’ beaches are impacted by hazards from the ocean. This Plan will focus on ways to address erosion during storms and inundation of creeks and drains by the ocean during storms. These hazards are very likely to become worse in the future.

Community Values Survey


Input from the community is vital to make this a local and practical Plan. At this stage of the project, we are interested in what beaches you visit and how you use and enjoy the beaches. Have your say via the online survey available on Council’s website (or visit The survey must be completed by October 17th, 2014.


The next stage of the Plan will seek community input to how hazards like erosion can be managed at Great Lakes’ beaches. Further opportunities for community involvement will be advertised as the Plan progresses.
