1 4 ORDINARY MEETING 22 OCTOBER REEF 2050 LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY PLAN D Walton 8/24/18-01 # v2 RECOMMENDATION: That Council endorses the attached submission on the Reef 2050 Long-term Sustainability Plan. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The Australian and Queensland governments are seeking comment on The Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan (Reef Plan) with submissions closing 26 October The Reef Plan is the overarching framework for protecting and managing the Great Barrier Reef from 2015 to Local government is identified as a key stakeholder in 19 of the 108 actions listed in the Reef Plan. Local government implications arising from the Reef Plan relate primarily to urban water quality management and community benefits derived from the reef. Additionally, Council is not identified as a key stakeholder in any of the economic benefits actions. Attachment one responds to these inclusions and omissions accordingly. In addition to the responses on the Reef Plan theme and associated actions (Attachment 1) key points to consider include: A resourcing strategy for the Reef Plan is yet to be developed this represents an opportunity for Council to outline its resourcing requirements when this process is undertaken and has been flagged accordingly in Councils submission. Regionally-based implementation plans and sector-based (government, reef industries, community groups and other sectors operating adjacent to the reef) implementation plans are likely to be the key instruments for on-ground delivery of many actions contained with the Reef Plan. These plans will enable local and regionally specific issues to be addressed, provided they are developed collaboratively and accompanied by appropriate resourcing. This has also been flagged in Council s submission. BACKGROUND: The Australian and Queensland governments are seeking comment on The Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan (Reef Plan) with submissions closing 26 October 2014.

2 5 The Plan builds on a three-year comprehensive Strategic Assessment undertaken by the Australian and Queensland governments that looked at development and multiple use issues in Queensland and identified how to strengthen the protection of the Reef s environmental values. Council s submission to the Strategic Assessment process was endorsed at the Ordinary Meeting 29 January Local government is identified as a key stakeholder in 19 of the 108 actions listed in the Reef Plan which are presented under the themes of: Water quality Ecosystem Health Biodiversity Heritage Community benefits Economic benefits Governance Council s draft submission (refer to attachment 1) responds to each of these themes and concludes with general comments. COMMENT: The Reef Plan is an overarching strategy with limited reference to specific localities within the Great Barrier Reef catchment. While a resourcing strategy is yet to be developed for Reef Plan implementation, the move toward regionally-based implementation plans and sectoral-based implementation plans will enable actions to address issues specific to that region / sector. OPTIONS: 1. That Council endorses the attached submission on the Reef 2050 Long-term Sustainability Plan. Or 2. That Council endorses an amended submission on the Reef 2050 Long-term Sustainability Plan. Or 3. That Council does not make a submission on the Reef Plan CONSIDERATIONS: Risk Management: Changes in policy or legislation may result in additional regulatory requirements to Council.

3 6 Financial: Changes in policy or legislation may require additional resources from Council. Corporate and Operational Plans: Corporate Plan 3.0 Environment: A sustainable, well managed and healthy environment that provides a balance between built infrastructure and the conservation of our world heritage features and natural and cultural resources. Statutory: Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975 this Act provides the framework for the management of the reef. Policy: Protection of the Natural Environment - No.1:04:43 Council's Role in Regional Economic Development - No. 1:05:02 Sustainability: The Reef Plan 2050 is the long-term sustainability plan to conserve and restore the outstanding universal values of the Great Barrier Reef. CONSULTATION: Regional Development Australia Far North Queensland and Torres Strait Islands Cairns Regional Council Economic Development Unit ATTACHMENTS: Attachment 1 - Council s draft submission to the Reef Plan Attachment 2 Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan - Questions and Answers Sophie Barrett Coordinator Sustainability Peter Boyd Manager Strategic Planning & Economic Development Kelly Reaston General Manager Planning & Environment

4 7 Attachment 1 Executive Attachment draft submission to the Reef Plan 2050 Cairns Regional Council makes the following submission on the Reef 2050 Long-Term Sustainability Plan in accordance with the public consultation process. Water Quality Actions: The Great Barrier Reef Outlook Report 2014 identifies poor water quality from land-based runoff as a major threat to the reef. The Reef Plan 2050 identifies Local Government as a key stakeholder in nine of the nineteen actions to address water quality. Cairns Regional Council acknowledges the important role it plays in managing the impacts of the urban water cycle (i.e. water supply, wastewater management and stormwater management) and requests early and ongoing involvement in the development of a Regional Implementation Plan (page 5 of Reef Plan 2050) and an associated resourcing strategy to deliver on water quality actions in the Cairns region. Ecosystem Health Actions: The Reef Plan 2050 identifies local government as a key stakeholder in three of the twenty-one actions to address ecosystem health. Cairns Regional Council supports these actions and requests due consideration of resourcing as part of the Reef Plan 2050 resourcing strategy as it is developed. Biodiversity Actions: The Reef Plan 2050 does not identify local government as a key stakeholder in any of the twenty actions to address biodiversity. Cairns Regional Council draws attention to action BA10 Identify, protect and manage key marine turtle breeding areas and foraging grounds. Cairns Regional Council is a stakeholder in managing vehicle access to beaches from land under its control (e.g. foreshore parklands) and sees this as an important action in managing human impacts on turtle nesting and hatching sites (e.g. Bramston Beach). Heritage Actions: The Reef Plan 2050 identifies local government as a key stakeholder in one of the eleven actions to address heritage values. Cairns Regional Council acknowledges its role in increasing community awareness and appreciation of heritage values and supports the action accordingly. Community Benefit Actions: The Reef Plan 2050 identifies local government as a key stakeholder in three of the eleven actions to address community benefits. Given that the draft Cairns Regional Planning Scheme is well advanced, urgent clarification is sought on all three of the following actions: CBA1: Ensure the impacts on Reef health and resilience is addressed when responding to coastal hazards. CBA2: Ensure community benefits derived from the Reef are considered in local and state-level policy and planning instruments and development and management decisions.

5 8 CBA4: Ensure the aesthetic qualities of the reefs, islands and the coast are considered and protected through planning and development decisions. Economic Benefit Actions: The Reef Plan 2050 does not identify local government as a key stakeholder in any of the sixteen economic benefit actions. Given that nature based tourism is a pillar of the Cairns regional economy, Cairns Regional Council seeks acknowledgement of trickle-down benefits that Council derives from infrastructure development to support the tourism, hospitality and construction sectors. Governance Actions: The Reef Plan 2050 identifies local government as a key stakeholder in three of the ten governance actions. As mentioned in the Water Quality response, Cairns Regional Council supports the actions to develop regionally tailored implementation plans and sectoral implementation plans and requests early and ongoing involvement in their development and resourcing for the Cairns region. General Comments: Cairns Regional Council acknowledges that a resourcing strategy for the Reef Plan 2050 will be developed in due course and requests due consideration of local government support in the delivery of identified actions. Cairns Regional Council acknowledges that the Reef Plan 2050 is an overarching framework for protecting and managing the Great Barrier Reef from 2015 to 2050 and looks forward to its involvement in the development of a Cairns Region Implementation Plan.
