Excerpt from the Kangaroo Island Council Development Plan
'The zone defines the coastal areas of high landscape or conservation value and incorporates policy to
ensure the preservation of the coastal landscape resource.
Pelican Lagoon, Prospect Hill and Sapphiretown Peninsula in particular, have been identified as having high
conservation value and should be protected. In addition, the high scenic value of Chapman River and the
surrounding area at Antechamber Bay should be protected for camping and recreational use.
However, the coastal environment plays an important role in Kangaroo Island's economy and the tourist
attraction provided by the coastal environment, coastal scenery and abundant wildlife is expected to see
growth in visitor numbers that will need to be appropriately managed and catered for. The provision of
facilities, including tourist accommodation and recreational facilities, may be established in the zone provided
they are sited and designed in a manner that is subservient to the natural and coastal environment and
adverse impact on natural features, landscapes, habitats and cultural assets is minimised.
The preference is that tourism development, including any associated access driveways and ancillary
structures, be located on cleared areas or areas where environmental improvements can be achieved.
Development should be located away from fragile coastal environments and significant habitat or breeding
In order to reinforce the Island's scenic and landscape experiences, tourism development should maintain a
strong visual impression of a sparsely developed or undeveloped coastline from public roads and land-based
The design and siting of tourist accommodation should ensure emphasis is given to raising consciousness
and appreciation of the natural, rural, coastal and cultural surroundings.
Upgrading of existing dwellings is encouraged in order to meet various criteria, including approved waste
control and effluent disposal systems, the raising of living areas above the level of hazard risk for flooding
and inundation or to reduce the level of hazard risk, and other environmental considerations.
It is envisaged that development is not undertaken on coastal dune systems, tidal wetlands, mangroves,
sand dunes or other environmentally sensitive areas.
The desired character of the zone does not seek to encroach on the existing use rights of farmers.'
