The Herzliya sea front plan has been finally approved, and is going to change the entire coastal strip of the city of Herzliya, the Planning Administration reported today.
This is a plan submitted by the Herzliya Local Committee and the Herzliya Municipal Tourism Development Company, which regulates 6 kilometers of the coastal strip and defines the permitted uses along it, including sports, commerce, recreation and leisure and rescue services.
The plan divides the coastal strip into 3 different segments, according to the unique characteristics of each segment, with the segments defining different planning principles that support the existing coastal characteristics: natural beaches for conservation, beaches for moderate development, and beaches for intensive development.
What will it look like?
The plan for the coastal strip of Herzliya, which aims to preserve natural values, includes the construction of a new and continuous promenade along the beach with connections to the city and future development areas.
In addition, the plan proposes: rehabilitation and expansion of Herzliya's beaches through a system of breakwaters, construction and development for tourism, sports, recreation and leisure along the coast, and the development of existing gardens and parks along the coast as connectors, to create connectivity between the beach and the urban coastal hinterland.
The plan also includes the national parks Sadna Ali and Apollonia as an outline area and establishes instructions for the preparation of detailed plans, with reference to guidelines for the preservation of buildings.

Erez Ben-Eliezer: "The Sea Front Plan is an important and significant plan, which enables the proper treatment of one of the busiest coastal stripes in the country, creates a diverse supply of beaches and determines the scope of construction and development while maintaining continuity of traffic along the coast, all while strengthening the connectivity between the beach and the coastal hinterland and providing a response to the growing scope of development and the growing need for the use of the coastal resource."
