The Shellharbour Local Government Area has about 7 kilometres of coastline. As a community, we greatly value our coast and beaches, which are largely bordered by urban development, including car parks, public reserves, and housing. The management and planning of this area is an ongoing and important role of Council.

We recognise the potential threats posed by natural coastal processes such as storms, large waves, and tides, as well as the looming risks associated with climate change and rising sea levels.
