Planning for coastal adaptation | Have your say
Protecting our iconic city’s lifestyle, environment and assets from the impacts of coastal hazards is a high priority for us all.
As we know, our precious coastline is dynamic and always changing. To safeguard for the future the City of Gold Coast is developing Our Resilient City – our plan for coastal adaptation.
State Government projections indicate by 2100 possible sea level rise of 0.8 metres and more cyclone activity tracking south which could mean an increase in coastal hazards.
The City is building on decades of experience continuing to work with stakeholders, asset owners, key agencies, businesses and the community to plan for future coastal hazards.
The long-term plan is supported by QCoast2100, the State Government’s Coastal Hazards Adaptation program, providing funding to Queensland Councils to develop coastal resilience plans.
Your involvement is valued to help identify adaptation options to avoid, manage or mitigate coastal hazards.
Our areas of focus include land use planning and development assessment, infrastructure planning and management, asset management, community planning, business continuity planning, and emergency management.
Our coast is integral to our city’s lifestyle, reputation and identity. It’s important to become involved and have your say, so the City can align with stakeholder expectations, preferences and values.
