Whether you live there or just visit, if you care about how Council manages its coastal reserves and public spaces, you can have your say on the future management options of Lucinda, Taylors Beach and Forrest Beach by completing a community survey.
Council recently completed the first round of community meetings (Lucinda – September 2021, Taylors Beach and Forrest Beach – April 2022) where participants were presented with foundational knowledge to understand how these special places came to be. Throughout these workshops, the community was encouraged to add their own knowledge of each area by sharing their experiences.
Throughout each session many issues, challenges and potential opportunities to enhance the condition, resilience and liveability of these coastal locations were discussed.
You can catch up on the process to date and other key information that has been developed via the Knowledge Hub located on Council’s website, Hinchinbrook Shoreline Erosion Management Plan Community Consultation page.
Council is now in the process of consolidating the information collected throughout the series of workshops and working to assess and develop a number of potential options to deliver on Council and community aspirations.
After considering the information provided, either from attending the workshops or visiting the Knowledge Hub, the community is invited to have their say on the future management options of their chosen coastal location.
Please click here to take the survey, noting surveys close 5.00pm on Thursday 30 June 2022.
Council intends for the outcomes of this information synthesis, feedback and options analysis to be presented back to the community in a second round of workshops which are envisaged to take place in July 2022.
