Coastal Futures: Planning Our Changing Coastline

Project Overview

The Coastal Futures: Planning Our Changing Coastline project is all about getting ready for the short, medium and long-term impacts of coastal hazards.

From Burrum Heads in the north, Tinnanbar in the south, and all coastal areas in between, this project will identify the current and future impacts of storm tides, inundation and coastal erosion.

The Coastal Futures: Planning Our Changing Coastline project will use this information to investigate how the community can become more resilient to the impacts of these coastal hazards.

It will develop a strategy to plan for, protect, or mitigate the impacts on:

  • Community infrastructure - such as boat ramps, piers, footpaths and playgrounds near the coast

  • Environmental assets - such as remnant or significant vegetation along the foreshore

  • Businesses and workplaces

  • Indigenous and cultural assets

Council is currently finalising Phase 4's identification of hazard areas and key assets. Work is progressing on Phase 5 to undertake risk assessments of key assets in coastal hazard areas.

The QCoast2100 Program

The Fraser Coast Regional Council Coastal Hazard Adaption Strategy project is predominately funded by the Queensland Government and the Local Government Associated of Queensland (LGAQ) through the QCoast2100 program.

The QCoast2100 program provides funding, tools and technical support to Queensland coastal local governments to prepare plans and strategies to address medium to long term coastal hazard risks as a result of climate change.

For more information about the QCoast2100program, including the minimum standards and guidelines, please refer to the QCoast website HERE.
