The City of Wanneroo is currently preparing a Coastal Hazard Risk Management & Adaptation Plan (CHRMAP), for the City of Wanneroo’s coastline. The CHRMAP is being completed in accordance with the State Planning Policy 2.6: State Coastal Policy and associated guidelines. Note, this does not include Quinns Rocks, which has a long term coastal protection works program currently being progressed by the City.
CHRMAP Development Process
Part 1 of the CHRMAP study was completed in 2015. The study investigated the potential future impacts of climate change, such as sea level rise, on the City’s beaches and foreshore areas. It identified a number of assets that may be vulnerable to coastal erosion within the next 35 years. A “Frequently Asked Questions” document was developed to answer questions for Part 1 of the CHRMAP, and can be viewed together with an overall map of the City's coastline in the Document Library below. Individual maps can be viewed by clicking on the links within the overall map. The CHRMAP Part 1 report can be viewed by clicking below.
The City is now undertaking Part 2 of the study – Risk Assessment, Analysis and Adaptation Planning. This stage of the study involves assessing the risk and developing an adaptation plan to manage potential sea level rise and associated coastal erosion. The City has engaged coastal management consultants Cardno to assist in this process.
In order to determine these risks, the City would like your input to know what you value about the coast and what you consider important for future conservation. To ensure the City understands your values, we urge you to complete our short survey in the Get Involved section below. The survey is open from the 22 July until the 19 August 2016.
Results of the survey will be presented at a community forum to be held later this year. Details will be posted on the City’s website and social media closer to the date.
