The Pittwater Waterway and Cowan Creek are renowned for their beautiful beaches, natural rivers and estuaries that teem with aquatic life.

We’re inviting residents to provide feedback on the issues and threats facing these precious waterways, that form part of the broader Hawkesbury-Nepean River system.

Your feedback will help inform a new Coastal Management Program for the Hawkesbury-Nepean River system that is being jointly developed by Northern Beaches Council with five other councils and the state government.

You can flag locations and issues of concern on the interactive map or share your thoughts via an online survey

The survey is being hosted on the Hornsby Shire Council website, one of the project’s six partner councils.

You can rank threats and issues that are of most concern to you. These include but are not limited to:

  1. Coastal hazards
  2. Urbanisation
  3. Resource conflict
  4. Public health
  5. Governance issues
  6. Climate change

Other participating councils include Central Coast Council, Hawkesbury City Council, Hornsby Shire Council, The Hills Shire Council and Ku-ring-gai Council.

The survey runs until Monday, 20 February. For more information or to have your say.
