Coastal and flood hazards community sessions to be held

Throughout September, Gosford Council will be holding a series of community sessions for residents to have a say and find out more about how coastal and flood hazards will be managed now and into the future.

Council is calling on the community to share their views on its latest comprehensive plans for the future management and protection of the region’s vast coastline, beaches, estuary foreshores and creeks.

Three draft plans will soon be on exhibition for the community to view, which address a range of strategies aimed at minimising the potential impact of coastal and flood hazards to people, built assets and coastal ecosystems.

A session for the Open Coast and Broken Bay Beaches Coastal Zone Management Plan will be held on Thursday, September 10, at MacMasters Beach SLSC, focusing on MacMasters, Copacabana, Killcare and Putty Beaches.

On Monday, September 14, there will be a session at Avoca SLSC to focus on Avoca and North Avoca Beaches. The Wednesday, September 16 session will be held at Terrigal SLSC and will focus on Terrigal, Wamberal and Forresters Beaches.

Other information sessions will relate to the Brisbane Water Foreshore Floodplain Risk Management Plan. On Wednesday, September 9, a community drop in session will be held at Davistown Progress Association Hall to focus on all Brisbane Water foreshore areas.

On Tuesday, September 15, the Erina Centre, Erina Fair will be the venue for another session, also to focus on all Brisbane Water foreshore areas.

Residents interested in the Erina Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan can attend a session on Tuesday, September 15, also at The Erina Centre, Erina Fair.
