PROJECT UPDATE:

Noosa Council has successfully received approval to hit pause on its completion of the Coastal Hazards Adaptation Plan (CHAP). The six-week public consultation period finished on Monday March 8, with Council receiving around 250 responses. Council was granted an extension from the Local Government Association of Queensland, who is coordinating the implementation of the QCoast2100 program on behalf of the Queensland Department of Environment & Science.

Due to the volume of submissions coupled with the level of detail in many, Council concluded more time was needed to ensure the right outcome for the Noosa community is achieved. We want to ensure Council achieves a sensible and measured response to managing coastal hazard risks now and into the future. We are using this additional time to explore workable solutions put forward by stakeholders. Council would like to thank everyone for their feedback regarding the draft CHAP.



Current Project Status

Council has completed a draft Coastal Hazards Adaptation Plan. This plan has been developed based on sound evidence, and critical input from the community, technical experts, and other key stakeholders.


A range of supporting documentation created to inform the development of the draft CHAP, as well as to support stakeholder understanding of the draft CHAP and the broader project (e.g. fact sheets, FAQ), are available to download via the Document Library on the right-hand side of this page. Please note, the FAQ document may be updated from time to time as a result of feedback received. Coastal hazard map layers can be viewed on Council's mapping website.


Project Summary

In 2016, Council decided that a Coastal Hazards Adaptation Plan (CHAP) should form the first step in Council's ongoing response to Climate Change. Development of this plan has been a multi-year project, and has been funded through a $490,000 grant under the Queensland Department of Environment & Science's QCoast2100 initiative. Implementation of the initiative has been coordinated by the Local Government Association of Queensland. The purpose of the plan is to help Noosa Shire adapt to and prepare for the potential effects of rising sea levels over time.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Climate change is already affecting Australian communities, and will likely have implications for Noosa Shire and its residents and businesses. Council is therefore inviting you to help shape the Noosa Climate Change Adaptation Plan.

    The Plan will be underpinned by coastal hazards modelling, key asset risk assessments and adaptation options analysis being undertaken by specialist consultants in 2017.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Noosa Shire Council is currently preparing a Coastal Hazard Adaptation Plan (CHAP) to better understand the risk of coastal hazards impacting our coastline today and in the future. A good understanding of coastal hazard risks means that Council and our community can be prepared and make informed decisions on what short and long-term actions should be taken to manage the risks to key assets, infrastructure, features and qualities of our coastal environment that are most valued by our community and visitors to our region. 

    In this survey, we’d like to understand what areas of the coast you use and value and why they are important to you.
