The Coast Protection Board was established in 1972 with the proclamation of the Coast Protection Act 1972. Since then, the Coast Protection Board has been proudly working together with the South Australian community and all levels of government to ensure that South Australia’s unique coastal environments are valued, sustainably managed and conserved so that they continue to thrive into the future.
Working together for tomorrow’s Coast
The Metropolitan Seaside Councils Committee (MSCC) have guardianship of 90Km of the metropolitan coast of Adelaide from St Kilda Beach in the north to Sellicks Beach in the south.
The seven councils who are members of the MSCC serve 740,000 residents of Adelaide and provide a valuable forum for councils to develop a common response to shared concerns, to facilitate collaboration to source funding to address priority concerns across council boundaries and to raise the profile of our coastal environments.
Other benefits to councils include preparation of submissions on coastal issues during public consultation on Government initiatives which specifically relate to the coastal environment.
