Lake Illawarra Estuary Management Committee

This group was formed in 2015 after care of Lake Illawarra was handed to Wollongong and Shellharbour councils by the NSW Government. The committee provides advice, feedback and support to the Councils.

We're in the process of making a Coastal Management Program [CMP] for the lake. This will be used when we do future work to protect and enhance the lake and its surrounding areas.

So far, the committee has prepared a ‘Synthesis Report’ that pulls together detailed research and background information about the lake. We've also spoken with the community and different groups who use the lake, for a ‘Community Uses, Values, Threats and Opportunities Report’.

We will use these reports to inform the draft CMP, which will outline future management of the lake. Once endorsed by both Councils, the draft CMP will then go to the State Government for certification. The final CMP will help us in future decisions about the lake.

If you’d like to know more about opportunities to be involved in planning for the lake, email or call us on (02) 4227 7111.

  • Three councillors from Wollongong City Council
