Coastal processes such as waves, tides and storms can lead to coastal hazards that can impact on our foreshores and low-lying areas around our coastline and estuaries. The risk of some coastal hazards is predicted to increase with ongoing changes to the climate, in particular shoreline erosion and inundation of low-lying private and public land and assets.
The new Coastal Management Program will provide a pathway for addressing identified coastal hazards, guiding Council’s future work to improve our coastal environment, reduce risks to natural and built assets, and maintain the value of this stretch of the NSW coast.
This survey is designed to gather information from the community about how you use and value our beaches, and to understand how you would like to see Council managing coastal hazards in the future.
Thank you for participating in our survey; your contribution is key to developing a successful Management Program.
