Boating Coastal Action Plans (BCAPs) provide guidance for the planning, management and funding of recreational boating facilities. They provide a framework in which to consider the water quality, environmental, safety and shared-access issues associated with boating.

There are three BCAPs currently in place (the BCAP for the central coastal region is now a Recreational Boating Facilities Framework), and together they provide a 'whole of coast picture' for the management and improvement of boating facilities. A full review of the BCAPs is underway in 2019.
