The National Sea Change Taskforce has been established as a national body to represent the interests of coastal councils and communities experiencing the effects of rapid growth and development.


The National Sea Change Taskforce was established in 2004 as a national body to represent the interests of coastal councils and communities experiencing the effects of rapid population and tourism growth.


The role of the National Sea Change Taskforce is to provide national leadership in addressing the impact of the ‘sea change’ phenomenon and to provide support and guidance to coastal councils attempting to manage the impact of rapid growth.


Current methods of planning, funding and managing rapid population and tourism growth in coastal areas are inconsistent and inadequate. The Taskforce promotes the adoption of a coordinated national approach to managing sea change growth that would involve a commitment by all three levels of government to work collaboratively to ensure that coastal development is managed with a focus on sustainability of coastal communities and the coastal environment.
