Coastal studies and projects

Coastal management projects and studies

Local councils are responsible for managing the risk to people, towns and infrastructure from coastal hazards. This involves reducing or avoiding damages caused by coastal storms such as erosion of beaches, inundation from storm surges and longer term processes such as sea level rise. Council is working on a Coastal Management Program which, when completed, will be the primary tool for managing these hazards.

Wharf Road Coastal Zone Management Plan

The plan contains a set of management aims, objectives and actions that protect and enhance.

Coastal Hazards Scoping Study

This study identified areas that are most at risk from coastal hazards and in need of a management response in the Coastal Management Program.

Eurobodalla Coastal Management Program (beaches and headlands)

Council is helping to make sure the Eurobodalla coast is managed and developed in a way that protects our natural features and supports ongoing growth.

Coastal Estuary Management Plan (Moruya River, Mummaga Lake, Wagonga Inlet)

This is a standalone plan for the management of our estuaries. Estuaries are critical environmental features, holding ecological, cultural, economic, aesthetic and recreational value for all of us.
