Policy Submissions

OSOF make submissions on a range of public consultations at a local and national level relating to the coastal and marine environment.

Local and central government seek public input on decisions affecting the environment, amendments to environmental laws, and new laws. Whether it is feedback on environmental decisions at a regional, city, or district council level, or providing direct input in the parliamentary process, OSOF utilise these opportunities to express our views and recommendations.
