Foreshore Management Plan

The Hinchinbrook Shire Council foreshore extends from Crystal Creek in the south to Lucinda in the north, covering over 50 km of shoreline. Within that area, Council manages the foreshore
reserves at Taylor’s Beach, Forrest Beach and Lucinda. The Hinchinbrook Shire Council Foreshore Management Plan Review covers the Lucinda and Forrest Beach areas.

Our Shire has an abundance of natural beauty, immense cultural wealth and diversity and great recreational facilities. Our foreshore reserves are great examples of that. Council promotes a safe, inclusive community that works collaboratively and we endeavour to promote these values, as well as environmental sustainability, in how we manage our public open spaces.

Foreshore management plans are integral management tools to ensure open foreshore spaces are managed for the benefit of the community, whilst making best use of ratepayers’ funds.

These plans consider how the foreshore is used by the community and provide actions to best maintain, develop and sustainably manage the areas.
