- nature conservation
- maintaining access to coastal resources for indigenous cultural activities
- public access and use of coastal resources
- management planning
- knowledge sharing and community engagement.

The Draft Coastal Management Plan is a draft statutory amendment to the existing coastal plan under the Coastal Protection and Management Act 1995. The Draft Coastal Management Plan does not address land-use planning or development regulated under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009. More information about coastal development in Queensland is available.
The State Policy for Coastal Management will remain in effect until the Coastal Management Plan is finalised. The State Policy for Coastal Management provides policy direction for natural resource management decision-makers about land on the coast, such as coastal reserves, beaches, esplanades and tidal areas.
