Coastal Management Areas

The coastal environment in the Gisborne region is an area with various resource management issues. Three management areas have been created to assist with its management: DC1 Significant Values Coastal Management Area – This includes coastal areas of special ecological, cultural, historic, scientific and landscape value. DC2 General Coastal Management Area – This includes the remainder of the coastal environment which is not in the Port Coastal Management Area or Significant Values Coastal Management Area. DP1 Port Coastal Management Area – This includes the existing Port Gisborne Basin, a section of the mouth of the Turanganui River, and the existing dredged navigation channel. It also includes two anchorage points and the dredged spoil dumping site in Poverty Bay. For each of these coastal management areas specific regional plan and regional coastal plan issues, objectives, policies and rules are provided. These should be read alongside the coastal management provisions in Part C3, which apply throughout the coastal environment. The objectives, policies and methods for coastal management areas apply, where relevant, to the entire coastal environment. The rules apply only to the CMA. The Significant Values Coastal Management Area and the General Coastal Management Area are contained in Part DC, while the Port Coastal Management Area is located in Part DP, the Port Area component of the Plan, alongside the district provisions relating to the Port.
