Strategy implementation

Putting the Strategy into action for a better marine estate - now and for the future.


The ten-year Marine Estate Management Strategy is in its fourth year, with $30.7 million allocated to support the delivery of over 100 projects in 2021 to 2022.

The NSW Government has committed approximately $30 million per annumover the next 6 years of the Strategy for the delivery of projects through to June 2028.

The Strategy Implementation Plan 2021-22 (PDF, 11744.94 KB) outlines:

  • the projects underway
  • the agencies and partners delivering those projects
  • when and where the projects will be delivered.

The projects are managed under nine initiatives.

An updated Strategy Implementation Plan will be published later in 2022 to outline the projects that will be implemented in future years.



Our partners in the delivery of the actions

Achieving outcomes continues to depend on strong collaboration across government, business, land managers, interest groups and the community.
