Join local representatives and Council staff for an afternoon to talk local adaptation planning and learn from the experiences of our previous plans.

Monday 15 October, 3-4.30pm

The Swansea Centre, 228 Pacific Highway, Swansea

Explore different approaches to adaptation planning and ways to custom the plan to suit the local community’s unique circumstances. The talk will highlight preliminary adaptation concepts developed during the Pelican and Blacksmiths local adaptation planning work and provide more information about sea level rise projections, hazards and associated risks to lakeside and coastal communities.

Adaptation plans are designed to address current and future inundation of land and protect assets from sea level rise, higher tides, beach erosion and higher flood levels. Local adaptation plans are created specifically for the local area. It’s not a one size fits all approach and although we learn from previous experience and domestic and international examples, future plans must be custom built to address the unique environmental landscape of the local area.

Community involvement is essential to the success of local adaptation planning, this talk is a great opportunity to hear how community representatives and Council have worked together to plan for the future.
