Coastal Works Reviews

Developments such as docks, launching ramps, groynes, underwater installations, dredging or filling works, or other development activities which extend from the Mean High Water Mark seaward over seabed that is Crown property require approval from Cabinet in the form of a Coastal Works Permit (formerly referred to as a Coastal Works Licence).  

Applications for Coastal Works are managed by the Ministry of Environment (now Ministry of Sustainability & Climate Change). The Ministry solicits reviews of Coastal Works proposals from relevant Government agencies, including the Department of Environment. The DoE normally submits its review to the Ministry within 3 weeks of receipt, if all information has been supplied and no additional information is required. The Ministry will use the agency reviews to prepare a paper to Caucus and, subsequently, Cabinet who will then make a decision on the application. The Ministry informs the applicant via letter if the application has been approved or refused.

Outlined below are those proposals that have been reviewed by the DoE and submitted to the Ministry to date.
