Climate Change Adaptation Plan

Project Summary:

Noosa Council has started a two-year project to develop a Climate Change Adaptation Plan (CCAP). The plan will help Noosa Shire adapt to and prepare for the potential effects of climate change over time. It will include a Coastal Hazards Adaptation Plan.

Since the project commenced, Council has completed the first three phases that form part of Council's eight phase commitment under the QCoast2100 initiative, including holding a number of community information events in 2017.


For more information see My Coast Community Bulletin #1 in the Document Library (to the right of this screen).


Current Project Status:

Council has now commenced work on Phases 4 & 5 which seek to identify which key assets could be at risk from coastal hazards in the future. An analysis of the coastal risks to these assets and locations will also be undertaken in phases 4 & 5.

To have your say and identify coastal values that are important to you and to complete a short survey, please:

2. Investigate our new coastal maps and see if your special coastal 'values' are affected:

3. Complete a survey (open from May 4): See Survey tab below.

Hard copies of the survey are also available at Council’s offices in Tewantin, Noosa Library( temporarily located at Noosa Civic), and the Cooroy Library, from May 4.

For enquiries or to submit feedback, please email grant.hinner@noosa.qld.gov.au

Project Background:

In 2016, Council decided that a Coastal Hazards Adaptation Plan (CHAP) should form the core of Noosa’s CCAP. Development of the CHAP is being funded through a $490,000 grant under the Queensland Department of Environment & Heritage Protection’s QCoast2100 initiative, which is being administered by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ).

  • My Coast - Community Coastal Values Survey

    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
