Fraser Coast Regional Council is planning for increased threats of erosion and higher storm tides along the coastline, and inviting residents to get involved in the process.

Fraser Coast Councillor, David Lewis, said that the council was keen to hear from the community about what they valued about the Fraser Coast coastline to help identify priorities for the planning project.

“From Burrum Heads in the north, to Tinnanbar in the south, and all areas in between, this project will determine how the council and the community can become more resilient to the effects of coastal hazards,” he said.

“We know that coastal communities are already at risk from sea erosion and storm tide inundation caused by cyclones and other severe storm systems, and these will become a greater threat with rising sea levels.

“The Coastal Futures: Planning Our Changing Coastline project will develop a plan to help protect our community assets and infrastructure, and maintain our unique natural environment here on the Fraser Coast.

“The project is an opportunity for council and residents to get on the front foot to identify and implement cost-effective mitigation measures over the medium and long term as we plan for development and growth.”

Cr Lewis added that the council was launching an online survey and a project page had been set up on Council’s Engagement Hub website.

Council has been allocated $430,000 in funding from the Queensland Government and the Local Government Association of Queensland through the QCoast 2100 program to develop a Coastal Hazard Adaption Strategy by September 2020.

It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
