EVENT REMINDER - Preparing a Local Adaptation Plan for Pelican and Blacksmiths - Phase B Workshop 2: How do we decide on our options?

Tuesday 23 August, 6pm - 8.30pm at Swansea Belmont Surf Club, Ungala Rd, Blacksmiths



Record of workshop discussions on hazard management options now online

A record of comments recorded on 11 August, during group discussions on the list of hazard management options suggested to date, is now available online. As we continue the planning process, more community comments will be added to this record.


Update on Pelican Boat Ramp

Many local residents have contacted Council regarding this matter and Council has responded. A concept design for a replacement boat ramp has been prepared, however Council is awaiting information from the Department of Primary Industries
regarding the erosion of the Pelican Foreshore before it can progress.

The required advice from The Department of Primary Industries is expected
to be received by November 2016.

At the community workshop to inform the preparation of a Local Adaptation Plan for Pelican and Blacksmiths, it was requested in a separate discussion that Council keep the community informed, and the Blacksmiths Post Office message board was suggested. A poster has since been put up in the Post Office with the latest information.

Council will continue to keep the community informed of any updates.



SURVEY - Pelican and Blacksmiths workshop evaluation

On Thursday 11 August Council met with the community to consider the list of hazard management options suggested by the community to date. The workshop offered an opportunity for people to revisit the hazards that the Pelican and Blacksmiths Local Adaptation Plan will ultimately address and to add new options to manage these hazards. The feedback from the community at this workshop will be provided online and revisited at the next workshop, 23 August (see above).

We invite you to provide your feedback on the workshop held 11 August by completing a short survey. Your feedback will help us improve future workshops.
