Coastal Planning Project
On 23 April 2015, the Shire of Irwin and the Northern Agricultural Catchments Council (NACC) hosted a Coastal Adaptation Information Forum in Port Denison.
This forum brought together members of the community and representatives from the Department of Planning (DoP), Curtin University, NACC and the Shire to discuss the Shire’s new coastal planning project – the Coastal Hazard Risk Management and Adaptation Plan (CHRMAP). The Shire is leading the project with partners from the DoP, Curtin and NACC. Around twenty community members and stakeholders attended the workshop and witnessed three presentations before taking part in a question and answer session and informal discussion.
The workshop discussed topics such as coastal assets, hazards, processes, coastal data, planning, protection infrastructure, communication, and partnerships.
Curtin’s Literature Review for the project and a summary report from the forum is below:
