How much do you value the Saltwater Creek and Lagoon at South West Rocks?

The Saltwater Creek and Lagoon estuary is a major asset for the Macleay Region. The estuary provides important natural habitats and ecosystems, opportunities for recreation, and areas of social and cultural significance. However, it is facing increasing pressures from urbanisation, population growth and climate change.

Council has started a scoping study to understand how the community uses this space, what you value about it and what your key concerns or issues are.

This information will be used to develop a Scoping Study as the first
