Coastal Adaptation Strategy

Coastal Adaptation Strategy

The Coastal Adaptation Strategy 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.
