Coastal Hazard Adaptation

Our Resilient Gulf

FINAL REPORT - Now available

Council and the consultants have now concluded all 8 phases of the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy and the final report is available on the Council website below.

As part of the process Council has undertaken a series of investigations to inform short and long-term management of the coastal zone, and how we can enhance resilience and adapt to changing coastal hazards.

Coastal hazards include erosion of sandy coastlines, and short or long-term seawater inundation of low-lying areas. Coastal hazards in the Gulf are typically associated with storms, tropical cyclones, and long-term sea-level rise.

Council received funding from the Queensland Government program QCoast2100 for a program of work to inform coastal hazard adaptation initiatives, including:

Phase 1: Developing a stakeholder engagement and communication strategy

Phase 2: Completing a scoping study

Phase 3: Mapping of coastal hazard areas (present day to 2100)

Phase 4: Collating values and assets, and assessing exposure to coastal hazards

Phase 5: Assessing coastal hazard risk to assets and values

Phase 6: Exploring the range of adaptation options and initiatives

Phase 7: Socio-economic assessment of adaptation options

Phase 8: Development, implementation and review of the Shire-wide STrategy.
