13. Healthy coast

Protect and enjoy our dunes, beaches, rocky shores and near-shore marine waters.

The beaches, dunes, rocky shores and estuaries are habitat for plants and animals. They also buffer our coastal residents from coastal hazards.

Maintaining a healthy coast is important to support natural values and our lifestyles. We recognise the importance of our community accessing and enjoying our coast.

A strategic and coordinated approach to sustainably manage these areas is needed.

To do this, we plan to:

  • manage coastal land to enhance and protect values
  • build resilience in this system through shoreline erosion management activities
  • develop an integrated plan to take care of this area whilst allowing use
  • promote and celebrate the cultural and coastal values
  • track the health of this area.
Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
