Council adopted the Local Adaptation Plan for Pelican, Blacksmiths, Swansea, Swansea Heads and Caves Beach on 25 October 2021. You can view the Council report here.

You can view the Local Adaptation Plan webpage for more information.

Local adaptation planning assists coastal communities that may be vulnerable to flooding and tidal inundation impacts as sea and lake levels rise. Pelican and Blacksmiths each have future flood and coastal risks unique to these areas.

Planning to adapt communities over time to mitigate future flood risks allows local residents and businesses to assess the risks early, tailor adaptation options to meet local needs and act when and where necessary. We are working together to keep our community safe now and in the future. Decisions we make can have lasting impacts. Many of the new roads, drains and homes built today will likely still be around in 50 to 100 years, so we need to plan for the future now.

This page has online resources that will keep you up to date with the development of this local adaption plan and we encourage you to provide your feedback or ask a question.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    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.
