In January 2021, council adopted a Coastal Hazards Policy, which provides a consistent approach to the management of current and emerging coastal hazards on council-controlled land within the municipality. The policy adopts a risk-based approach to managing coastal hazards and clarifies responsibilities regarding council-controlled land, Crown land and privately-owned land. The policy also enables council to update coastal management plans for key coastal areas.

Council is now in the process of developing coastal management plans for areas that are vulnerable to coastal erosion – including Pipe Clay Lagoon in Cremorne and Roches Beach in Lauderdale – and will be holding two community information sessions in March 2022, date to be confirmed pending COVID-19 restrictions.

Community members who live on or value the coastline in these areas are invited to attend. Council staff will be available to answer questions about the Coastal Hazards Policy and how residents in areas that have been identified as vulnerable to coastal erosion, coastal inundation, and sea-level rise can provide further input into the development of coastal management plans.

If you are unable to attend but would like to have a further discussion with someone at council, please contact us via email at clarence@ccc.tas.gov.au

Residents are also encouraged to complete the relevant online survey or mapping tool regarding their local area at www.yoursay.ccc.tas.gov.au between 21 January – 18 February 2022. 

An information sheet is also available to download below which contains more information about the Coastal Hazards Policy and the process of developing the Coastal Management Plans.
