|What is a SEMP used for?||
The SEMP will be used to:
|What has been done to date?||
Our consultants, Water Technology, have undertaken an assessment of the coastal processes in developed areas exposed to coastal erosion.
Results of this assessment were presented at the 'Have Your Say' community meetings held in September 2021 (Lucinda) and April 2022 (Forrest Beach and Taylors Beach).
Participants at these meetings were presented with a variety of information which provided foundational understanding of how these special places came to be, and from there, the community was encouraged to add to the knowledge of each area by sharing their experiences. Each session discussed the issues, challenges and potential opportunities to enhance the condition, resilience and liveability of these coastal locations.
Council is now consolidating the information collected throughout the series of workshops, and develop and assess a number of potential options to deliver on Council's and the community's aspirations for each coastal zone.
|How is the SEMP different to the Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy (CHAS) already complete?||
The CHAS is a strategic planning document for the Hinchinbrook local government area. This document looked at the hazards such as coastal erosion, storm tide inundation and sea level rise and their potential impacts on the community, infrastructure and the environment.
The CHAS provides a broad understanding of the vulnerabilities and risks associated with a changing climate.
The CHAS also identified adaptation pathways to mitigate coastal hazards in the short, medium and long term (2100+).
The SEMP provides a more detailed plan with specific actions and recommendations for dealing with the short-term coastal erosion issues that are affecting the settlements of Lucinda, Taylors Beach and Forrest Beach now, and how these might affect outcomes into the future.
The SEMP will provide a management strategy to deal with shoreline erosion issues over the next 10 to 20 years, including how solutions may be funded and implemented by Council.
