Managing our coastal hazards

COASTAL hazard management will come under the spotlight at Bogangar on Wednesday when Tweed Shire Council hosts its community information session.

Natural Resource Management co-ordinator Jane Lofthouse said the workshop would outline how the Coastal Hazards section of the Tweed Development Control Plan would protect lives and property with relation to coastal urban development.

“We’ll talk about proposed restrictions for new buildings and major renovations, including that attributed to climate change and associated sea level rises,” Ms Lofthouse said.

“It is part of the development control plan’s objective to conserve the Tweed Coast and maintain community access to public land.”

The sessions will be held at Cabarita Beach Sports Club on Wednesday.
