Coastal Adaptation Strategy
The Coastal Adaptation Strategy (CAS) will assist in planning for the future management of Council’s coastline and associated infrastructure, as well as better understand identified risks to the community through the effects of potential sea level rise and changes to coastal processes.
Council has received $27,500 in funding support from the Coastal Protection Board and has engaged Wavelength Consulting to deliver the Coastal Adaptation Strategy.
This project will identify Council’s coastal priorities which will be used to inform actions and ongoing financial commitment to coastal management through Council’s strategic plans.
The Coastal Adaptation Strategy is proposed to cover the coastline between Cape Jaffa and Blackford Drain. This will include the areas of Cape Jaffa, Wyomi, Pinks Beach, Kingston SE township and Blackford drain area.
The full strategy can be accessed via the link below. Alternately, please contact the Council office to request a printed copy of the strategy. To assist the community to further understand and interpret some of the more technical components contained within the strategy, a series of Fact Sheets and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) are also available.
Community members are able to submit comments, or questions for clarification in response to the CAS. These can be submitted via the online form below or at the Council office until Monday 30 November 2020.
Once this feedback has been received, a final and/or revised strategy will be tabled for Council adoption. The key actions will then be incorporated in Council’s strategic plans, with priority actions implemented where possible.
