Resilient Cape Strategic Plan

Resilient Cape Strategic Plan – Draft Released for Public Comment 

Our coast line is changing and planning for change is crucial. The Queensland State Government has funded the QCoast2100 program to help local governments build resilience to coastal hazards and for each to prepare a Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy (CHAS).

The Resilient Cape Strategic Plan is Cook Shire Council’s CHAS. It is about developing strategies that will put us in a better position to reduce impacts and to vastly improve protection for our coast from a predicted 0.8m increase in sea level rise in 2100.

How Can I Have Input?

 A copy of the Draft Resilient Cape Strategic Plan may be viewed or downloaded here. Alternatively, a copy of the document can be viewed at Council’s office in Cooktown, as well as at the Bloomfield Library.

Areas within the Cook Shire that have been identified as potentially being exposed to coastal hazards in the future are shown in the Phase 3 Report and include homes along the foreshore at Ayton, Port Stewart,  Portland Roads and Quarantine Bay as well as sea wall and foreshore area in Cooktown.
