Update - 27 October 2021

The draft ‘Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan’ (CHRMAP) was adopted by the Council for public consultation purposes on 24 February 2021 and an extended public advertising period conducted between 21 May – 28 September, 2021.

The main purpose of the CHRMAP will be to: ‘…identify the current and projected extent of risk to public assets, public infrastructure and environmental/social/cultural values from coastal hazards, including those arising from projected sea level rise, and to provide a meaningful framework for responding to those hazards, including financial modelling, for recommended adaptation pathways over a 100-year timeframe.’

During the public consultation period an extensive community engagement process was initiated by the City and staffed information displays and community information sessions organised in both Dunsborough and Busselton centres. For interested community members and other parties who were unable to attend these, a series of online or specially convened information sessions were also provided.

There was an encouraging level and range of community interest, enquiry, conditional support and concern received by the City in regard to proposed recommendations made in the draft CHRMAP. A total of 62 formal submissions were received.

The City wishes to acknowledge and thank those members of our community who have actively participated in this important strategic process to date; your observations, suggestions, concerns and constructive feedback will all help inform the further critique and refinement of the draft CHRMAP.
