Have your say: Planning for the affects of climate change on our Cairns coast
We are preparing a plan and we want to hear from you about the options you would prefer to see used on your part of the coast to address:
- storm tides
- flooding hazards
Cairns is a coastal community; we live, work and play on the coast, our rivers, creeks and estuaries, and offshore islands. Our unique coastal environment is an important community and economic asset, and is highly valued by our 164,000 residents and 2.9 million annual visitors alike.
Council is working with the Queensland Government to plan for and respond to current and future coastal changes from erosion, storm tide inundation and sea level rise.
This project, “Our Cairns Coast: Adapting for the future”, will help us understand what long-term coastal changes mean for our community, our businesses and our infrastructure, and to plan for resilience.
