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.

    Part of the local adaptation planning process involves determining when particular actions need to be taken. This survey will help the project team understand the community acceptance and tolerance levels of tidal inundation and establish the community’s threshold for potential flooding and inundation impacts. This is measured by asking how your household would accept the possible changes, such as to your lifestyle and property, access to roads and footpaths to visit shops and services, and outdoor spaces.
