Council is developing a long-term strategy to help manage the impacts of coastal hazards.
Coastal hazards include erosion of our beaches, and short or long-term seawater inundation of land along the coastline.
The strategy development will include technical studies and strategic planning actions to inform a proactive plan for the long-term management of our coast. We are seeking to reduce the impacts of coastal hazards on our coast and communities, and enhance the resilience of our coastline.
Council is receiving funding support to develop the strategy from the QCoast2100 Coastal Hazard Adaptation Program. The QCoast2100 Program is an initiative of the Queensland Government and the Local Government Association of Queensland which is intended to facilitate the development of a coastal hazard adaptation strategy by each coastal council in Queensland.
