Cooloola Coast – The Resilient Coast

Cooloola Coast - The Resilient Coast is a program being undertaken by Gympie Regional Council to manage and adapt to current and future coastal hazard impacts on our coastline and communities.

Coastal hazards include erosion of our sandy coastlines, and short or long-term inundation of low-lying areas. 

The current focus of the program is the development of a Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy. The strategy is being funded by the State Government QCoast2100 Program. More information about the process can be found at www.qcoast2100.com.au

The strategy will help Council make more informed decisions in areas that will be affected by coastal hazards, showing support in key areas of planning and operations such as:

  • Land use planning and development assessment
  • Infrastructure planning and management including roads, stormwater and foreshores
  • Asset management and planning including nature conservation, recreation, cultural heritage values and other public amenities
  • Community planning
  • Emergency management.

The Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy (phase 8) is waiting to be endorsed by Council early - mid 2022.

Once it has been endorsed by Council it will be published here.

Previous project updates can be found in the links below.

Council’s team is committed to working through the actions and applying for grant opportunities as they arise.
