Coastal Adaptation & Shoreline Erosion Management in Redland City
The natural processes shaping coastlines are very dynamic with changes to coast environments constantly occurring through the influence of tides, waves, floods, storms and cyclones, as well as changes in sea level. In some cases human activities or structures also have an impact on the dynamics of our coastlines.
Council has committed to developing strategies and plans with the advice of senior levels of government and where appropriate, in direct consultation with specifically affected communities. The development of Counci's Hazard Adaptation Strategy and Shoreline Erosion Management Plan is overseen by the Coastal Adapatation Steering Committee and informed by Community Reference Groups and Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Coproration.
The focus of Council’s shoreline erosion mitigation actions is on areas where there is a threat to public land and assets and in areas in which there is a community interest and benefit.
If you are a private waterfront property owner affected by erosion, you can conduct individual property protection works. Information on constructing private coastal erosion protection works is provided in the link below.
