Thank you for all of the survey responses received. The consultation has now closed. We are now reviewing the feedback and information and will provide a summary shortly. Read the LATEST COMMUNITY NEWSLETTER for project news.

Together, Council and our community are planning for future flood risks and tidal inundation as sea and lake levels rise. The community newsletter has been delivered to local households and businesses in Swansea, Swansea Heads, Caves Beach, Pelican and Blacksmiths. Help our project team by completing the tidal inundation survey and tell us how often you could accept possible impacts to your lifestyle, property and transport access.

The impacts of climate change and tidal inundation are expected to develop gradually over coming decades. We are planning for them now so that when the time comes to act, we have a plan in place to mitigate flooding and tidal inundation risks as much as possible.

We’ve recently completed a feasibility assessment on a number of shortlisted adaptation options determined by the joint Council and Community Working Group.

The following online resources are available to provide more information on the feasibility assessment outcomes and upcoming cost benefit analysis.

Please complete the tidal inundation survey by Friday 5 June.

    The team received a request from a local resident to hear from an expert at a future community planning event or Q & A session. Thank you for the suggestion, we will look at this and arrange for an expert to come along and speak with the Pelican and Blacksmiths community shortly.

    Why can't you Relocate boat ramp at Pelican to old original site south of existing ramp as a temporary until council decides to fix ramp.

    Buckles asked almost 4 years ago

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your question.

    Council officers have investigated the feasibility of providing temporary boat ramp access along the Pelican foreshore to facilitate lake entry for small boats. This investigation examined the potential to use a temporary boat ramp structure, placed on the site of the old boat ramp, as has been put forward by several local residents. Due to the significant erosion of the foreshore and the fast flowing channel currents experienced at the site, it’s is not considered feasible to deploy a temporary boat ramp structure.

    Additional alternative boat launching facilities are located within close proximity to Pelican including Blacksmiths Channel Reserve Blacksmiths and Belmont South Foreshore Reserve, Paley Street, Belmont South. Two other launching facilities are also located at Thomas Humphreys Reserve, access via Wallarah Street and at Lake Street, Swansea.

    Hope this helps.
