Council has been on a journey to develop Our Coast Our Future, a long-term strategy to help manage and adapt to the coastal hazard impacts on our coastline and communities. Coastal hazards include erosion of our beaches, and short or long-term seawater inundation of low-lying areas along the coastline.
The aim of the program was to better understand current and future impacts of coastal hazards on the Gladstone Region coastline, and plan to manage, and where possible, reduce these impacts on our coast and communities. In doing so, we are able to enhance the resilience of our coastline over time.
The Our Coast Our Future strategy has been developed over the past six months. This allowed time to:
- undertake detailed coastal hazard modelling studies
- hold a range of conversations with you, our community, and
- incorporate your values and ideas into the strategy.
The development of the strategy is a key action in achieving Gladstone Regional Council Strategic Plan Goal 2 – Healthy Environment, Healthy Community.
